September is not fall until the end of the month. The tempratures in an average september are still in the upper 70s/low 80s for a good chunk of the month. The historical average for every day except September 30th is at least 70 degrees:

Tampa is definitely hotter on average though - no question about it.
For me anything in the 70s is "fall" weather but that's a different story. When I lived in your part of the world, September was always considered Fall and Labor Day the last day/weekend of Summer.

Tampa is hotter, but by about 5 degrees, let's not exaggerate differences. Stepping off the plane from Chicago to Tampa will be very comparable to the average person.

No it won't period. The END. There is a reason why you're completely on your own here.

Yeah it will. 5 degrees F and 5 points of RH higher is comparable. It's the same ballpark.

Again I know better than you since I live/lived in both climates.

You have some weird obsession with Chicago, but don't go crazy over this.
I think it is YOU Who needs a MIRROR CHECK and SEE SOMEONE OBSESSED WITH A CITY. Don't get this thread closed too ACCUSING ALL WHO DISAGREE... Miami is not in this thread either TO GO FOR SOMEONES JUGULAR for their opinions on weather. . Besides... who would argue a Northern American City. Has as much or too close to say one is defiantly hotter and MORE HUMID on average? Then a Florida city?..... Might be ONLY YOU....
FLORIDA WINS THE HUMIDITY INDEX. OR AT LEAST ALL THE GULF COAST.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago#Climate

Tampa is warmer on average than Chicago during summer, with highs of around 90F during the warmest month vs highs of 84F for Chicago on warmest month. However, Chicago can get hotter than Tampa ever can; Tampa's record high is only 99F, while Chicago, even at its coolest station, O'Hare, has a record high of 105F. Although Tampa is consistently hotter, and more humid, it is much less of a risk of severe heat waves than in Chicago.

I felt that this weather had to be abnormal, so I hopped onto the Illinois forum and found this thread:

Coldest June in many years?

I was in Chicago for a week last month (June) and had to buy a light jacket while I was there. For the first few days of the trip, the weather was chilly (high in 50s), dreary and drizzly. I dare say that you cannot find an example of a June day in Tampa like that.
