Anybody else getting tired of this humidity that we`ve been having a lot lately? We are suppose to be getting more rain next week which means more humidity.

Personally, I have enjoyed it. I absolutely hate dry weather (it's very hard on my skin). I'll take the humidity over the dryness any day.

We need the rain. It did not rain as much as it should have in June.

Don't worry, our climate is not changing.

I would like to personally ask for a lot more rain.

I am writing from Massachusetts. It's been 100 percent humidity for weeks now with virtually no rain.
I am tired of humidity and obsess about the dry West!

Having moved here from Phila, I just think to myself, "it's an east coast day today..."

I can judge the humidity by my bicycling. Back in Phila, sweat would constantly drip into my eyes. Here, it evaporates before it hits my brow, except one day earlier this week, for the first time since moving here a bit over a year ago. Not bad at all...

It's been humid? I'm from the east too and in all seriousness I have not found it to be humid. I guess I am still used to the 90-100% humidity of summer in the east. I hope I never adjust.

Generally speaking Pueblo being in the Arkansas river valley and on the southeast has the most humidity of any major city in Colorado and even we are no comparison to the south east. That being said I love when it's "humid" because its a fun change to the dry heat we usually have, which I love as well.

I see that you're in Ridgeway. Keep in mind that it usually doesn't get as humid in the mountains and western Colorado as it does along the front range and eastern plains. Typically, if we have a humid day here along the front range, the humidity moves up from the southeast/Gulf of Mexico and pushes up against the mountains. The mountains act as somewhat of a "buffer" against further moisture movement to the west. That's why in many cases, the dew point in Pueblo or Denver could be in the lower 60s while the dew point in Grand Junction or Ridgeway could be in the lower 20s.

Granted, the "humidity" that we sometimes get in the summer here is nothing like the southeast or east coast.
