100% Humidity

Some colleagues were having a disagreement as to whether there can be 100% humidity without rain. I didn't know the answer at the time and learned it just now from a website feature actually named "Ask Steve." Ha. This time it was more like "Ask, Steve."

Anyway, that Steve's a TV weatherman in, unsurprisingly, Seattle. He says,
When the relative humidity reaches 100 percent, you'll notice it feels quite wet outside, but that doesn't necessarily mean it has to rain.
One fewer mystery.

Update: explanations of how relative humidity works here, here, here, here, and here. My mind tends to glaze over a little at the details on this, but nonetheless, there it is.
