Humidity doesn't really vary much at all in much of the eastern U.S. Nearly every eastern city is in the 50%-60% humidity zone, with some outliers in coastal areas and around the great lakes.



That said, it's true that generally speaking cool humid summers aren't as bad as hot humid ones.

Yep, dewpoint tells a different story.

Interesting that it shows coastal California as being very humid, but it's not the same feeling as east of the Rockies type of humid. I think dew point factors into the disgusting feel in the East. Even Seattle in the summer feels quite nice.

Ah... that make sense then. The dew points in Denver are so low, most winter mornings we don't even get frost. It makes winter more tolerable as well.

I hate low humidity and couldn't live in Denver.

Agreed. Much of the east, particularly the Southeast, can get very humid. I think the obvious choices would be desert states.

The Appalachian Mountain areas of the Southeast are less humid...Asheville and Knoxville have beautiful summers. You can see it on the map in post #22. But it's still a bit more humid than almost anywhere in the West.
