Sorry I'll take the clouds in Seattle any second of any day.
Seattle is quite humid, minus the short summer.

In terms of relative humidity, Olympia, WA is the most humid city in the US. And it's only 60 miles from Seattle. Seattle is quite clammy most of the year and very uncomfortable.

You can't feel it though. It doesn't feel humid at all, which is cool, because it might be 90 outside and i'm not sweating, then i go back home to Arkansas and its 80, and i'm sweating like crazy!

Id agree. Both times Ive been there, its been quite humid. Its not so horrible because its not hot, but you can most definitely feel the moisture in the air.

Uhhh...I think I'm going to go with NYC. Natural light has got to be one of the most refreshing things known to mankind.

SF is also also deemed humid as well but its cold. There's a difference between that muggy, wet heat back east and the marine layer we have out west.

Not the same in the least.

One thing I hated about living in NYC was the summer. Its cloudy and rainy one minute and clear the next. The common thread is the humidity-sticky and so uncomfortable.

I love NY for many reasons but weather is definitely not one of them.

Well, summer is summer...it's a season for a reason. There's just something homogenous (not only) about the Pacific Northwest. If you think the humidity is bad in NYC you have a low tolerance, because (I proudly say) there is nothing quite like Gulf Coast humidity.
