Temperature, humidity and dew point

Gary, good site, have been there before.
You may find this handy?
WHAT IS DEW POINT? The temperature at which moisture will condense.

Example: At sea level 14.696 psiA), if air temperature is 70° F and relative humidity is 65%, the dew point is 57° F. see below.

Dewpoint varies with pressure, temperature, and relative humidity.

Dew Point and Relative Humidity Explained

Relative Humidity and Dew Point are closely related, and are based upon the amount of water vapor in the air and the total amount of water vapor that the air can hold at a given temperature.
