Just returned yesterday from San Diego, as I used to live there for years. Someone there complained of the humidity, and I wanted to laugh. It was about 97 degrees here in northern FL recently where I live, and with the heat index, had to be over 100 degrees. All that to say, it's all relative to what you're used to...San Diego is so mild that I can see how it would feel more humid than normal with the higher temps, etc. Now that I'm back in FL, I haven't been outside all day today...enjoy that beautiful weather out there in SD for me!!

I'd advise coastal areas -- I have a lot of allergies and live near the coast for that reason. Air quality is very good, pollen counts are low.... look to the coast, is my advice.

I was just in San Diego, and I was surprised at how humid it is. It was also much hotter than I was expecting, even in coastal places like La Jolla and Solana Beach. Walking around Old Town was almost unbeareable in the mid-day heat.

If you have seasonal allergies and are trying to get away from them, I'm not sure if it makes much sense to move to San Diego. While it's no where near as green as any Eastern city, it's probably the most green city in the southwestern U.S. There's a lot of plants and pollen.

Where were you coming from? I'm curious as to why you thought it was hotter than you expected and why you thought it was so humid. I guess San Diego is pretty green for a southwestern city.

I have asthsma and I'm fine here, no problems. The only time it acts up is when there is a wildfire or smoke. My husband has really bad allergies and he moved here from Massachussetts 20 years ago and thought they would be better here-wrong!

I honestly love the humidity, I know people are scratching their heads, but I don't care. It's good for your bones, I love the wet air, that's why I love Southern Baja California. I would love to live in Florida, Louisiana, and maybe parts of Southeast Texas. But, they don't have mi amor Mexico, so I ain't going nowhere.

Incredible - it's late in the evening and our heat index is still at 81 degrees according to the Weather Channel. For those without A/C, it's going to be tough night for sleep.

Except you sweat like a pig with the slightest physical activity when its humid. I'm tired of feeling sticky! And don't forget about the mold in humid climates. Great stuff.

There are always sticky days like this during the summer. After last year (specifically late July) I've gotten used to it. Just drink tons of water, and take a nice cold shower when you're able to. Hang in there, the storm will pass !

The weather has changed in San Diego.
It was very temperate in the 60's. Not now.
Where it is going??, is anybody's bet. San Diego is not a humid climate. New Orleans is a humid climate. Been there done that. East San Diego is dryer than living on the beach. Depends where you live in San Diego. But overall, San Diego is more humid than 1960. Global warming.
