I'm sure there's some, but maybe it's not so bad because of the ocean. Then again Houston's not too far from water, but I couldn't live there for that reason.

Humidity is worse in Houston than CC, but not by too much. It can get pretty bad and semi-frequently hits 100%.

But like I said it is not as bad as Houston.

It's very humid much of the time. If you're thinking about moving here, you need to spend some time in July/August to get the full effect.

Invest in good deodorant, undershirts and LOTS of talcum powder.

Corpus

Houston

It can be more bearable in Corpus if you are close enough to the bay or gulf to feel the breeze.

According to that chart, Corpus and Houston have virtually the same humidity every single month of the year.

Humidity, or more precisely, Relative Humidity, is one of the most common factors considered when looking for a comfortable place to live. If one were to remove all other factors, such as industry, trade, agriculture, jobs, schools, etc., weather would probably be the sole determinant. Yet it seems to be the least understood. Most of us are familiar with Dew Fall, which is what happens when the water vapor content exceeds the max allowed at any given temperature.

A chart here will give you the numbers for any given temp.
Water Vapor and Vapor Pressure

The flip side of Dew Fall is Fog. That same airborne water vapor will become visible as fog if the temp swings the other way and cannot condense. Corpus Christi has very little in the way of unseasonable fog, which can make life very much more miserable than a relatively high humid day.

At least a day of 80% humidity will not ground planes at the airport.
