ambientweather.net does not have forecasting. It is only for live data and historical data. If you want forecasting then I suggest using Weather Underground or other networks to upload to or use PC software or create a website that pulls it all together with templates.

well, I live in Arizona, and, frankly, when the humidity is 15% or less, its super dry, so I dont really care if it shows RH at 11% or 8%, it still just as dry, IMO..

I'm not disagreeing with you in terms of just humidity for humidity's sake. But humidity is important to be accurate to calculate the proper dew point.

Your business, but to me that's like saying anything over 100F is hot, so why would I care if it's actually 115F? I know you're new to the desert SW, but we do live in one of the driest/hottest places in the country, if not the world. I've hit 1% humidity numerous times and so has the ASOS and RAWS down the street. Just sayin'...

no, there is a big difference in how you feel between 100 degrees and 115 degrees; can you actually say the same thing about humidity of 10% and humidity of 4%?
plus, I've never seen a humidity of 1% in the many years I have come here before moving here, and an extensive google search also turned up nothing like a 1% humidity every recorded in Arizona..

Just sayin'

Couldn't find official records that far back with humidity extremes, so I'll post the thread from this past June. Specifically reply 3 and 13.

What part of "extensive google search also turned up nothing like a 1% humidity every recorded in Arizona, Just sayin'"...... as obviously my word wasn't good enough for you.
BTW, I'm certainly not butt hurt, trust me. Oh wait, you don't.... :lol:

No. My problem is why would I say something "so bold" and not be able to back it up. I'm not the only one who lives here, let alone the other forum member(s) also here that can likely corroborate the data, or throw the BS flag. If push came to shove, I'd call up my local WFO and get the skinny from the horse's mouth.
Let's move along....
