Heat waves are getting more humid. That's the subtle change that has been observed by climate scientists, said Kenny Blumenfeld, a senior climatologist with the Department of Natural Resources' State Climate Office.
But so far, researchers haven't logged a jump in days of extreme summer heat, even as the globe is warming from climate change.
