Default I ask to many questions

So what do we make of this. Is it real world.This came from a friend when i was asking to many question
Here is an additional and plain answer to your question. It’s clear that when its wet,…there’s less drag on the pellets. Hence the pellets will land higher on target and/or shoot flatter.
This makes some sense of why when we see the “calm before the storm” we get noticeable differences?

Ambient air density
Air temperature, pressure, altitude and humidity variations make up the ambient air density. Humidity has a counter intuitive impact. Since water vapor has a density of 0.8 grams per litre, while dry air averages about 1.225 grams per litre, higher humidity actually decreases the air density, and therefore decreases the drag.
