Humidity in winter ...

I was speaking to Nikos, our island weather expert yesterday...

Its been feeling nippy, apparently its down to the high humidity here on the island. A trip to his Skiathos town weather station explains why its hard to dry clothes, and there has been a damp chill.


So around 3am this morning it was 95% humidity. Even when we were chatting in Papadamatis Street, it was 90%. Its as near to raining as you can get without it actually happening. The island air is almost soaked to the particles, from which it comes from ...

The sun is out today,and from first thing the humidity dropped, as the sunlight dried out the air.

I now understand why the dehumidifier indoors, has been sucking 3 litres of water from the house each 12 hours instead of 24. In addition the damp has appeared in the bathroom with a vengance, and signs of it rising from the floor ...

Something to think about all those who read the blog, and have island homes ...
