So I take SA as the lesser of 2 evils.
I spent a spring, summer and early fall commuting between San Antonio and Florida. In Florida, I traveled a lot from Tampa To Key Largo and back. In my experience:

1. Tampa was slightly more uncomfortable on average than San Antonio.

1a. San Antonio was slightly less humid, but hotter.

1b. San Antonio is plenty humid (dew point averages 69 degrees in July, which is pretty bad; most of S. FL averages around 73, even worse).

2. It was almost always nicer in the Keys. The temperature was often lower than central Florida, and there was often a 'tropical breeze' that somehow took the sting out of the high temperature and humidity.

San Antonio is much drier and virtually no air movement. I just moved from Texas after living there 8 years. I am from Florida. I can tell you at least the air moves here. SA feels like the sun is sitting on your head. Terrible, miserable, heat.

Odd, I've found there's almost always a breeze here.

There is always a breeze. I'm not sure what the poster you quoted is even talking about.

My husband is from Ft. L and he always says there is nothing comparable to the ocean breeze you get there. He says it's hotter here in the summer but less humid (at least in SA and Austin), and so the dry heat is preferable. But, he misses the water and that breeze all the time.

Hawaii has the warmest winter temps, then South FL, then Central FL/South TX. Also, the coast of SoCal has warmer winters (especially at night) than Arizona.

I too prefer humid heat over dry heat. I have lived in San Antonio, though, and it was still muggy with thundershowers and pesky bugs during the summer. HOWEVER, the temperature itself was hotter than the typical Florida summer temperature. In Florida, the sea breeze (and beaches) help to cool things off. The weather, while hot, doesn't compare to places in the interior/northeast/desert of the country, even if it is more humid.

I think it must be a personal preference thing then.

While it can be humid here in the morning, it generally burns off most days by noon when it's gotten hot.

I've spent a lot of time in FL and MD in the summer and I much prefer the dry heat of San Antonio to the humid heat of FL or MD.

Even though it gets hotter here, to me it's more comfortable than the humidity, which gets you even when you're in the shade.

I don't know how people think SA heat is "dry". My de-humidifier fills up daily in the summer months. Nights barely cool down, and feel humid to me. Dry summers to me are what we had in Colorado Springs. It could get in the 90's and you don't really need an A/C.
