The highest dewpoint ever in the UK is something like 22-23C, so I don't believe Buxton is at 20C. We are currently at 16.5C DP, air temp 29.9C (likely overexposed).

I thought it seems a bit high but my other weather station also shows 75 % humidity which is a dewpoint of 19.3 according to this calculator

It seems a lot more accurate than this guys dewpoint:

Live Buxton Weather

19 degree dewpoints are certainly widespread today, looking at www.weatheronline.co.uk. Lyneham is recording a dewpoint of 23 degrees at 10:00 this morning. It's actually normal for the SE to be dryer and less humid than the west. More continental influence.

Hmm, maybe it's right then? As said before I've never fully got to grips with how humidity/heat indexes are calculated. Just looked at the DP table in the link and there doesn't seem to be much logic re. north/south, coastal/inland like you generally get with air temps. All I know is although I like this sort of humidity for the novelty value I certainly wouldn't want it every day and I'm looking forward to hearing it all go bang later on

You have better chance than I do

I am enjoying the 19 degree dewpoint while it lasts! Definately has a "thick" feel to it the air today at 25/19 (temp,dp) although in reality the air is actually thinner of course.

Another morning where it's too warm to do anything outside or even open up the windows. Wonderful.

98F in Paris at the moment. The dewpoint peaked at 68F earlier in the day.
I'm loving northwestern Europe's subarctic summers.
