Default How Humid does it get in San Antonio in the summer?

I love the Warm weather and can tolerate temperatures up to a Hot 100 degrees as long as the Humidity is not high.

Does it get Very Humid during the summer?
Is it constant or Varies during the Summer?
Do people avoid the outdoors during the summer because it's so Hot and Humid?

I Also want to Thank everyone who has taken the time to answer my threads!
You are Wonderful People!

During the summer, if it is in the 90-95 range it can get pretty humid, however the humidity is always low when it is 100 or above.

Yes it gets humid here, but not real bad. My boss is from Mississippi and he says that the humidity here in San Antonio is nothing compared to there (plus they have lots of mosquitoes!).

And definately not as humid as South Carolina! (we were there for one summer, more than we could take!) I'd think it would depend on your point of reference. What is "humid" to you? To folks from Phoenix or Las Vegas, this would be terribly humid. To folks from the other areas that have been mentioned here, SA is quite bearable.

The humidity is not so bad here which surprised us. Every now and then when it is bad my husband says it makes it hard for him to breath. He is a WA native and although it is wet most of the time up there, the humidity is not noticed in the air except once or twice a year. I prefer dry heat like Phoenix or Vegas, but it has been ok for me here. I only noticed a handful of "muggy" days last summer and a couple times so far this year the day after a good rain. I hear it is really bad in Houston and that we are lucky in SA because we seem to always have some sort of breeze. Unfortunately I do think the heat does keep most people indoors or at the waterparks or pools. Really no amount of heat will keep us indoors for long, our whole family gets "cabin fever" very easily.

I would have to disagree w/ folks here, last summer was my 1st here, and I was sweating every day. When it's in the mid 90s+ and the normal humidity, it is much hotter than a day in Phoenix, AZ when it's 110 degrees and dry.

Coming from Leeward Oahu, I expect it to be somewhat the same as the summers we have here. We get mid 90's with high humidity. Trades are not always around in the summer mid day temps so it can be brutal. We're landing in SA this July, so I'll find out soon enough

I do remember sweating quite a bit in Hawaii during the summers. SA is bad, but not horrible. And I have never been bitten by a single mosquito here (yes, you all are thinking it's because I am so bitter, right?
