Message: Re: RUC RH in isobaric files

Posted by Stan Benjamin on 13 Dec 99, 16:39 MT, in response to RUC RH in isobaric files, posted by Eric Kemp on 13 Dec 99, 11:32 MT

The RUC RH is always with respect to saturation over liquid water. The Eta RH is defined the same way (although there was a messy period for the Eta RH last November and December when it was temporarily changed to a water/ice mix).

I just added this information to a web page that defines how various RUC diagnosed variables are calculated at http://maps.fsl.noaa.gov/vartxt.cgi. Thanks for asking.
