It's been too warm to run the heat and too cold to run the A/C, meanwhile it's been very humid. So it feels clammy in my house. Am I the only one having this problem? I don't remember this being a problem last winter.....

I know exactly what you're talking about, especially at nighttime when I'm sleeping. You just have to turn the AC down a whole lot, about 67 and then just put a blanket on. Having an oversized AC unit is great for most of the year here. I can get my place down to 72 in August. But like you said it wants to cycle on and off excessively this time of the year. I even bought a little dehumidifier, but it's just so loud.

I told you guys months ago to expect a flat and dry winter. As long as the upper level energy stays well to our north we will see no real cold and or dry air.

So it's normal for it to be clammy in the house? I mean, yeah, since neither the A/C nor the heat are running, there is no dehumidifying going on. But I find it ludicrous to have to turn the A/C on to 67 and freeze, in order to dehumidify.....

This a.m. it was 8-degrees Fahrenheit where I went to college up in the northwest.

No problems w/ our weather here whatsoever.

I like your input regarding our weather - just don't post anything about my Bucs.

I noticed the same thing last night! Cool weather + humidity is a gross mix. My hair is always an excellent humidity gage. It looked terrible last night. There isn't much I know to do for the humidity when it's a bit cool out other than be thankful we're not experiencing freezing temps like much of the country is.

We don't use heat or A/C at all during these months. We open or close the windows and that does the trick for the temperature. The humidity has been higher. The Air Mass that has remained over us (with the occasional week frontal system moving though) has pretty much the same dewpoints. Until we get some cooler air to make it down this way, expect the humidity to remain.

It is highest in the early morning hours as the temperature cools but the dew points remain the same. I don't want to insult anyones intelligence, but when the temp lowers closer to the dew points, humidity goes up.

Minor inconvenience as I enjoy the best 6 months of weather Florida brings me IMO.
