Yes, KY and TN are saunas in summer. Winters are mild, very gray and rainy, not much snow. Where I was in TN (Clarksville) got snow a few times, and everything closed down. Oddly, theyre petrified of snow down there and its VERY disruptive when everyone runs and hides from the snow. Anyways, yes, KY and TN are very humid most of the time.

If you want manageable humidity, stay west of the 100th meridian, or if you stray east of it, stay way north (ND, northern MN & WI, UP of MI, far upstate NY, northern New England.)

Please don't make such blanket statements. Both Tennessee and Kentucky cover a lot of territory. East Tennessee and East Kentucky are much less humid than Clarksville. It's certainly more humid here than it is in the Desert Southwest, obviously. But the Smoky Mountains aren't nearly as humid as the flatlands of Clarksville / Hopkinsville.

California has a mediterranean climate, only the West coast has that climate unforunately when you get up north of California like Oregon it consists of a wet than dry climate. So if you don't mind the rain, Oregon, a lot of Californians are retiring there but it is still a lot cheaper than California.

Yes many Nebraskans in Colorado, though the weather is unpredictable here, maybe 30s one day then 70s another, just like the midwest if you don't like the weather wait 10 minutes.

If youre UP in the mountains its not so bad (simply due to cooler temps, not less humidity), but down in the valleys in the mountains its steamy too. I remember my last lovely trip to Gatlinburg when it was just as hot and steamy as when we left Clarksville.

Yes, there are times when the weather in the Smoky Mountains is as humid as in the lowlands of Clarksville. There are also times when it's colder in East Tennessee than it is in Alaska. But, on average, it's less humid here than it is in Middle Tennessee.

Didn't it just snow in Seattle less than a week ago?

Barely, mainly in the hills. Here in downtown, we got a very small amount and it didn't stick. Roads were fine. Don't come to Seattle expecting to see snow lol, you'll be very dissapointed. It snows more back home in Arkansas by a long shot than it does here, which is weird!!! Now if you live in some farther out areas at higher elevations, you might see more. But here in Seattle, snow is very rare.
