Can anyone tell me what the humid areas are in BC? I know the coast is humid of course but I don't want to live near the ocean so is there anywhere inland that is humid as well? I was interested in Terrace but they had a pulp mill and there is new industrial developments in the future I am afraid of. I also don't want to be around any pulp mills past or present. Any suggestions?

Uummm ...... BC gets tons and tons of precipitation in certain places but it can't actually be considered a humid place, not even along the coast and rainforest areas except on rare occasions. It sometimes gets drippy dampness dripping down from rainforest crowns, that dampness is produced directly from rainforest foliage in places along the coast. But there's not much humidity in the air because the ocean's winds sweep humidity up and away over top of the coastal mountains and up into the atmosphere. In most of the interior locations it gets a lot less rain and more snow than on the coast and very little humidity if any at all, it's a much drier climate.

The following website has some pretty good information about all of BC's many climate zones. You can look it over but you won't find many areas that would be subject to a lot of humidity. Precipitation, yes, there's plenty of that in many places.

You could do some online research about BC microclimates for more detailed information.

If you want lots of humidity you'd be better off looking at locations in Ontario and Quebec. Now THAT is real humidity that they get.

You want low humidity?

Interior BC has many dry locations.

In fact the driest places in Canada are located in BC, caused by a severe rainshadow
just east of the Coast Mountains.

Ash-croft, BC is the driest....desert dry....less than 200 mm (or about 7 inches).

If you need a bigger place.....Kamloops is your ticket, dry with a long hot summer,
by Canadian standards
