Yeah I made that mistake, visited in the middle of June. However the thunderstorms were beautiful, some of the best I've ever seen. But that humidity though borderline killed me, not used to that much coming from a desert and all.

new orleans has some of the best food and restaurants and music and beautiful architecture in the country and some pretty decent casinos, very, very fun city to visit, not to mention amazing vegetation like palms and citrus and a very sensual culture and climate. just a very poorly run city. way too much crime, I rarely go beyond a few areas in that city when I visit. New Orleans needs a rudy giuliani ,alot of corruption in Louisiana and some of the worst mayors from that city but amazing history and fantastic food and drink and culture

This about nails it.

I love New Orleans but I wouldn't live there.

Maybe if you could give one more criteria I could narrow down some cities, but for what you are asking for, there are no cities that will fit all of those criteria in the US In fact, your wanting of beautiful storms but lack of humidity is contradictory, since beautiful storms need humidity to occur. You'll have to choose one!

The Front Range of Colorado is a thunderstorm capital. Just be on the lookout for hail, especially the occasional golf ball sized variety. Sometimes the plow trucks have to be called out to clear the streets.

We can go from a cloudless sky in the morning to so dark you need headlights to drive by 2pm. Lighting that's so close, the sound of thunder is synced up with the strikes.

A couple of people have been killed by lighting so far this year, which is typical. Hail last Friday took out everything from roofs and home windows to windshields.

Other than that, quite beautiful.

I'm in the Black Hills and we can get some crazy storms similar to this. However, they don't really compare to the storms in the humid areas to the east, and Tornado Alley. The skies aren't quite the same and it doesn't have the same feeling. They aren't as exciting here.
