Well, water has a higher heat capacity than air, so it retains its heat. It takes 4200 Joules of energy to heat 1 Kg of water up by 1 degree centigrade. The water will feel warm because it is warmer. That is, it still has its heat inside it, and loses this heat slowly by conduction, convection, radi…

Air pressure affects the boiling point. Water does not ALWAYS boil at 212 degrees F. It only boils at 212 at sea level with pressure at around 14 psi.
