How come every now and again the dew point and relative humidity in Yeppoon is higher than in Darwin? Yesterday the DP was 26 here and that is higher than Darwin !

Also why is the dew point high in Perth ? Is Perth getting more humid these days... seeing dp's in the 20's there the other day.

Dewpoint and relative humidity are two different things. Dewpoint is a far closer measure of humidity than the latter. Yeppoon, Darwin and Perth are also at very different latitudes, longitudes, and in different climate zones.
