Ah, I had wondered the same thing.

https://www.microblife.in/why-is-kansas-so-humid/ That will give you all the info you need. I have lived in the AZ desert, so know dry, and MS, so know humidity.

What is annoying is at night, the humidity goes generally goes high, and without a breeze, it is not good.

We have been horrible wind gusts here. About 2 weeks ago, I think, the gusts were 40 to 51 mph, and it blew through the nights. It actually forces the heat into any crevice when it blows like that.

It is my belief that being surrounded by wind turbine farms, with wind turbines going hundreds of feet into the atmosphere, that it upsets the upper atmosphere. I have seen wind gusts as high as 90 mph, more than we experienced in a hurricane we were in. So, getting a lot of wind damage in our area.

Most of KS is in a drought most of the time anymore.

As you move east to west in Kansas, the humidity goes way down for the most part. In eastern Kansas where the majority of the population lives, the humidity can vary from very oppressive to elevated due to low level moisture that moves northward from the Gulf of Mexico, and then stagnates under high pressure ridges during the summer months.

Wind!

https://www.weather.gov/eax/December15HighWinds

"Non-convective winds both ahead and behind the thunderstorms were quite strong. Several locations around the area reported wind gusts above 50 MPH with Lees Summit peaking at 53 MPH, St. Joseph reached 52 MPH, and Johnson County Executive Airport in Olathe, KS reached 60 MPH. Once the line of storms arrived, several areas reported winds in excess of 75 MPH. The Kansas City Downtown Airport reached a peak gust of 77MPH."

Also, most homes are not energy efficient, and see very high electric/gas bills, as seriously the wind in winter or summer is an issue. One can ask for a "history" of the bills when considering purchasing a home, and even though it won't be the same, it can give one some idea.

I read the heat this year has killed a lot of cattle, so if you eat beef...........

My husband is from KS, born and raised here, and says the weather has changed drastically. The same goes for most places now, if not all. I do remember though that in the 80s when we tried to camp at the lake in a pop-up, we had to return home during the day because of the heat. The four seasons of KS: Hot, Rain, Cold, Rain as it seems every time there is going to be a decent temperature, it rains.

There's a humidity line running through Kansas/Nebraska. Western Kansas has the same low humidity as Eastern Colorado. Eastern Kansas is really humid. I've never heard anyone talk about humidity in the Dakotas but it must be the same.

The Dakotas can see extreme heat and humidity as well, but the duration is often shorter with more frequent cool fronts in the summer. The state record high temperature in North Dakota is still over 120F.
