Anywhere west of I-35 is pleasantly dry in summer. Like Abilene or San Angelo. And the cost of living is very low. Even Austin and San Antonio are much less humid than within 100 miles of the gulf coast.

Humidity is a function of the Dew Point, which is itself limited by the overnight low. If the temperature goes below 65 in the night, the dew point is also below 65, and remains pretty close to that for the remainder of the day. (The dew point can never, by definition, be above the temperature.) Humidity is tolerable any time the dew point is below about 72. Above that, you start to feel the humidity, no matter what the temperature is.

Default Az??

Bless Brother, I have lived in Arizona, close to Phoenix. I was SHOCkED at how hot it was. For an example, the 6 months we lived there, my daughter could not go to the PLAYGROUND DURING THE DAY, because she would get BURNED by the swings and the slide. There are NO CHILDREN playing at playgrounds. Seriously. One day it was 108 and I got heat stroke. For ur own good,,,,AZ is hot,,,,i mean HOT tilu get SICK of it,,,,it is NOT WARM.....i will never go back there. and there are rattlesnakes...

Warm-hot with low humidity is not anywhere east of the Mississippi river , so no to AL, LA, NC, or SC

Pretty much I'm looking for the cheapest and most comfortable (warm - hot weather but low humidity) city/state to live.
Knoxville, TN. One of the lowest cost of living places in the US with a decent amount of jobs and plenty of safe places to choose from. Oh, it does have humidity, but I don't think you'd find places in the West that are as cheap.

I would suggest Phoenix or Tuscon. You might also like North Carolina, even though it's humid it's not AS humid in the mountains and there's a nice ocean breeze along the coast.
