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.
