I have been here over 20 years, a few down around Miami, a few north of Orlando and the rest on the west coast.

Above 90 is fine for me.

No matter how many of these threads we get many people still can not comprehend that different people like different things.

Not everyone is the same obviously, but plenty of research has been done to try and figure out what temperature is the most comortable for a person. And that range is between 68 and 78, and humidity between 35% to 65%. Temps in the 90's with humidity close to 90 is not supposed to feel comfortable to the human body.

The majority of the population of the world live in a climate that averages above 75 degrees. That is about the same as Miami and about 3 degrees higher than Orlando.

How can you sat that " Temps in the 90's with humidity close to 90 is not supposed to feel comfortable to the human body."?

That 90 degrees is going to feel drastically different to someone that weighs 300 lbs and someone that weighs 190. Let alone a myriad of other factors.

Well with Global Warming summers are just as hot up north now as they are in Florida, some places worse actually

The Dakotas can reach 120 in the summer time! Yikes, I'd rather be in Florida thanks!

Id rather enjoy a nice Florida winter as well, no -30 for me thanks. Keep that in North Dakota where it belongs

idk. 120 dry may feel like 100 but not much less then that. thats still brutally hot either way

ill take 85 and humid over 120 dry any time any day. say it was 106 or 107 dry, id take that over 95 and humid

im curious as to what summers will be like when i move to las vegas

btw it doesnt normally get that hot in north dakota, maybe mid or upper 80s sounds about right. the midwest is a place of extremes, usually the further inland you are the mmore extreme weather can be. i read once abouta city in russia (Cant remmbe rwhere sorry) but it claimed to have the highest temperature range of any city in the world, setting a record low of -98 in the winter, with a record high of 102 in the summer! hows that for extreme. yikes x10!!!!!!!!!! :O

idk depends on the pavement, thats why so many homes in the desert southwest have red tile roofs instead of the typical dark grey or black shingles. dark shingles absorb a lot of heat and can heat up to 190 F! literally hot enough to fry an egg

the same applies with dark pavement, i imagine cheap shoes would melt if you stood still too long in a place like vegas, phoenix, any desert city

yes im very exicted about moving!
