(¦ Indicates a review question, which means it requires only a basic understanding of the material to answer. Questions without this designation typically require integrating or extending the concepts presented thus far.)

. When trying to predict the lowest temperature that will be reached overnight, Forecasters pay close attention to the dew-point temperature. Why is the air temperature unlikely to drop much below the dew point? (The high latent heat of vaporization of water is important.)

To determine

The air temperature unlikely to drop much below the dew point.



The dew point is the point at which the water vapor present ion the atmosphere starts condensing.

The dew point temperature is the air temperature at which the water vapor present in the atmosphere starts changing its state from gaseous to liquid...
