Should this not be 'Cé mhéad'?

What's the difference between "ce mhead" and "ca mhead"? Are they used specifically or interchangeably?

Gramadach na Gaeilge states that cé mhéad is used with a direct relative clause, e.g. Cé mhéad atá air? (“How much is it?”), while cá mhéad doesn’t need one.

I had the same question. I'm surprised no one has answered.

From answers to other questions, I've assumed that it is purely dialectal differences...but I'm just assuming.
