Is corn to blame for high humidity?by Tim Post, Minnesota Public Radio
Weather experts in Canada and the United States say there's a connection between corn and high dew points.
St. Cloud, Minn. — Their theory is that corn and other crops send water into the atmosphere, raising humidity and even causing more severe weather.
We asked MPR reporter Tim Post to investigate. He went out with Bob Weissman, a meteorologist at St. Cloud State University, to take dew point measurements around the St. Cloud area to see whether there really is a connection between corn and humidity.
