We're seriously thinking of moving there or to W. Virginia, depending on how the middle/high schools are and the humidity.


The humidity in Kentucky and West Virginia is more simular to the humidity in Indiana than it is to the humidity in the Deep South along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico from Houston to Tallahassee where the air is so thick with warm moisture that it steams like a sauna.

That's actually the temperature doing that rather than the humidity itself. The humidity just amplifies the effect of hot and cold. The gulf coast has a bad habit of favoring near constant hot. haha

On a fair day, let's say anywhere between 50-70 degrees with a breeze, high humidity is nearly unnoticable unless you are working outdoors for a long time.

Sadly it makes cold worse too. 20F is two different worlds with low or high humidity.

When I was in KY, the early morning temps were in the mid 30s with high humidity. It was even foggy a couple of mornings. The high humidity and low temps actually felt good to me. My sinuses which are usually dry and stuffy cleared up and it felt as if I was actually breathing better. The moisture also felt good on my dry skin.
I currently live in a place with very low humidity, especially in winter. i have to use lotion on my hands every day or my skin especially on my hands will chap and crack from the dryness. I don't know how if at all it will change when I'm living in KY, but the humidity was a positive for me while I was visiting.
Most of the weather aps will give you humidity levels as well as temps. If you want to see differences in humidity, plug in a few towns in KY and a few towns in West Virginia and see what the difference is on any given day. I don't think it will be much different.
