I'm sure there aren't any states that have zero humidity 365 days a year.
But what states are known for low humidity? Some of you may think Phoenix has low humidity but I disagree- I get bit by mosquitos non stop in the summer even using deet head to toe I still end up with some bites
Its getting warm already and its only beginning of March
I dread the summers here so much.

The mosquitoes in Phoenix come from the incessant need of swimming pools in backyards. The humidity there is not necessarily quite high, with the exception of the monsoon season where dew points reach the 50s or 60s.

You may want to consider West Texas which is less affected by the Monsoon.

My guess is that there are a few states that have low humidity. But I'll just tell you what I know firsthand.

The western part of my state has very low humidity. The climate is semi-arid. There can be some warm summer days, but nothing like Phoenix. The winters are much milder then over here on the eastern side where I live, but it does get cold and snowy there, too. For example~my high was around 35 today. The high in Rapid City was 67 according to Keloland. Pine Ridge was well into the 70s. It's not always like that, but they have a fairly mild climate.

I would say the desert southwestern states overall.

NOT any of the southeastern states.... humidity is high... especially in the summer thanks to the Gulf of Mexico.

If you think Arizona is humid, good luck finding somewhere that's not humid. I understand all about the monsoon season in the Southwest, but the Southwest is still dry compared to the entire eastern half of the country.

I would have to say Alaska, been there 3 times during the summer and never experienced a humid day.
