I wish it were MORE humid. LOL I love Missouri and the humidity. I hate this dry weather. A while back, our humidity here was 7%! That is dryer than the sahara! I have a son who has horrible eczema and dry skin and he is miserable here. I HATE always feeling dry, always having to put on globs of lotion and lip balm. I can't wait till I am in a position to move out of here. Just being honest.

I`ve lived in a very humid climate too but my body has adjusted to the dry air now which I love.

I have felt the humidity since I moved here in May. This idea that the heat along the Front Range is dry is an outright lie. Denver may be less humid than Houston or New Orleans, but it is much more humid than Las Vegas or Phoenix.

Even on the day we got to 102 last week it was still too humid. There is nothing worse than the combination of the humidity and the nearby agricultural fields. The odor is embarrassing and unbearable!

Humidity? What humidity? Go visit my family in Atlanta or Miami and then complain about humidity.

I think it's a welcome change.

No complaints from me ( well maybe I am compalining about the humidity. I hate that sticky feeling! ). However in spite of my complaint, I tremendously enjoy the rain, when it actually does rain. We can always use more rain in this desert. It was so humid one recent day, that I thought I may have passed thru a wormhole that led me back to Virginia Beach. On another recent day the temp was only 93 but the humidity was higher than usual and it felt as hot to me as 105 on a day when the humidity is in the single digit range. The humidity seems to magnify the heat.

Colorado in general has the most perfect weather you can find anywhere in the US... except for maybe some areas of California.

I've always thought it was more accurate to say that the humidity magnifies the discomfort rather than the heat, but just my perspective there. It all seems to stop mattering after about 105 degrees anyway

Definitely agree with the rest, though. I like it nice and dry (my sinuses don't, but that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make), however I also love a good rain (when it rains.)

No, saying that it is humid along the Front Range is an outright lie. You couldn't possibly be serious, to have humid conditions at a mile above sea level would be rare and minimal. Does Denver ever have a dew point above 70? I know above 60 is very rare even. Try the 77 dew point we reached last week, then you can say it's not a dry city. Seriously 90 percent of the country is more humid than the front range. Besides, if it were humid your low temperatures would be above 70, all Summer long.

Humidity along the Front Range? What a laugh.

I just got back from Charlottesville Virginia and Louisville Kentucky and that's humid.

When you have to dry off twice after you get out of the shower, that's humid. You don't even feel the humidity much until the sun goes down anyway. Then... in the evening, it's muggy and hot... almost moreso than it was during the day.

In Colorado, you get 50s and even high 40s at night.

And winter time... let's not even go there.

Colorado is just like a dry dream when it comes to humidity.
