Here's the info you requested for the whole year, not just summer.

From my personal experience, the heat and humidity in Charlotte are very tolerable. I grew up in southern Ohio, and have found the humidity in that region to be much worse. The summer season temps in NC just last a little longer than some areas of the country.

Truthfully, what's a couple of extra degrees? As for the humidity, it's nowhere near the deep south.

Anyways, the extra heat, is more than made up for by the six months of fall like weather (Oct - Mar) - spectacular!

Both cities have pretty similar climates and both get miserably humid from mid-July through early-September. The tradeoff for those days are days like today with a low in the upper 40s, high pushing 80, dry air and a few wispy clouds against a blue sky and a palette of color from the trees...and its a week 'til November!

Interesting. The Charlotte Weather History chart shows pretty high humidity ranges throughout the year. Is that due to rain ... or is it generally fairly humid?

Pretty high? We average about 60%, that's no where near high! And that's only an average, sometimes it's lower than that, sometimes it is higher than that. But really, 60% is fairly comfortable and no big deal

Okay. I'm in Los Angeles right now, where it's pretty dry. I don't normally track humidity, so it just sounded high.

I wondered where you were!

Humidity doesn't tend to become really uncomfortable until it reaches above 75%. At 30% it's WAY too low, your skin dries out so fast and your hands always need lotion, lol. I think 40-50% is a great balance myself

Okay. It's just that the link posted above — Moderator cut: link removed, linking to competitors sites is not allowed— shows morning humidity above 75% in the mornings. I'm wondering if the chart is off, or for other years.

At any rate, point taken.

You really need to focus more on the averages because the humidity in the morning pretty quickly drops as the sun rises higher in the sky
