I am from the DC area and it gets really humid here in the summer, although I know areas like Houston are much worse. I can't figure Dallas out though. Is it far enough west where it stays pretty dry or does it feel like you are in someone's armpit on those dogdays of July and August?

Yes, Dallas gets HUMID! Yes, like you said "armpits" use deodorant ( a lot of it). No stinky men allowed.

Yes, but it's not as bad as Houston.

It wasn't humid when I was here last summer, but then it hadn't rained for something like 4 months. Very arid. However, it has been raining its tail off over the Spring, so I imagine it will get sticky here during the first part of the summer. And as it was described to me by a co-worker "the humidity goes away once everything browns up"....I lived in DC the first part of my life and the humidity doesn't compare. DC is closer to Florida because of the proximity to so much water. That's also why Houston is more humid as well.

I grew up around DC and recently moved here.

It is in no way as humid here as DC

Google humidity levels for Dallas and where you live.

My sister is from Denver...Dallas kills her with the humidity, I live in Florida and feel that its very dry in Texas, its all relative.

Your right Lisa. It's definitely drier out west, but more moist towards the east. I was here last summer and humidity seemed non-existent compared to what I remembered from the East coast, but still greater than Socal. Dallas is pretty landlocked, so the humidity is not nearly as bad as Houston or Austin.

It gets mildly humid right after it rains... so during the past few weeks when there was rain every other day, it was a little humid, but still nothing like the mid-atlantic. Other than the few weeks of rain so far it's been really dry... just yesterday I had to get moisturizer out becuase my hands and feet were getting uncomfortably dry.

It's so arid here compared to anywhere else that static electricity is a serious issue. Walking down the aisle in Kroger I would pick up enough static from pushing the cart that I would see blue sparks every time I reached to grab something off the metal shelves.
