The label associated with each bar indicates the date and time that the phase is obtained, and the companion time labels indicate the rise and set times of the Moon for the nearest time interval in which the moon is above the horizon.
We base the humidity comfort level on the dew point, as it determines whether perspiration will evaporate from the skin, thereby cooling the body. Lower dew points feel drier and higher dew points feel more humid. Unlike temperature, which typically varies significantly between night and day, dew point tends to change more slowly, so while the temperature may drop at night, a muggy day is typically followed by a muggy night.
The chance that a given day will be muggy in Gulf Shores is decreasing during November, falling from 25% to 16% over the course of the month.
For reference, on August 6, the muggiest day of the year, there are muggy conditions 98% of the time, while on January 29, the least muggy day of the year, there are muggy conditions 3% of the time.
