The relative humidity typically ranges from 51% (mildly humid) to 97% (very humid) over the course of a typical June, rarely dropping below 33% (comfortable) and reaching as high as 100% (very humid). The air is driest around June 5, at which time the relative humidity drops below 60% (mildly humid) three days out of four; it is most humid around June 21, rising above 97% (very humid) three days out of four.
Dew point is often a better measure of how comfortable a person will find the weather than relative humidity because it more directly relates to whether perspiration will evaporate from the skin, thereby cooling the body. Lower dew points feel drier and higher dew points feel more humid. Over the course of a typical June, the dew point typically varies from 49 F (9.5 C) (dry) to 63 F (17 C) (mildy humid) and is rarely below 42 F (5.5 C) (dry) or above 69 F (20.5 C) (muggy). The time of the month between June 1 and June 30 is the most comfortable, with dew points that are neither too dry nor too muggy.
Over the course of June typical wind speeds vary from 0 mph to 12 mph (calm to gentle breeze), rarely exceeding 18 mph (fresh breeze). The highest average wind speed of 5 mph (light breeze) occurs around June 1, at which time the average daily maximum wind speed is 12 mph (gentle breeze). The lowest average wind speed of 5 mph (light breeze) occurs around June 30, at which time the average daily maximum wind speed is 11 mph (gentle breeze).
