Dew is the moisture that forms as a result of condensation. It is the result of water changing from a vapour to a liquid.
Dew forms as temperatures drop and objects cool down. If the object becomes cool enough, the air around the object will also cool. Colder air is less able to hold water vapour than warm air. It forces water vapour in the air around cooling object to condense. When condensation happens, small water droplets form-dew.
Weather conditions can also influence an area’s dew point. Strong wind, for instance mix different layers of air, containing different amounts of water vapour. This reduces the atmosphere’s ability to form dew.
