From the annual charts here on City Data it looks about the same, but the impression I get is that SE Florida humidity never really breaks, and it gets muggy a lot earlier in the spring/summer and stays muggy later in the fall than Tampa. I'm here in Tampa right now and the humidity is essentially gone (rather like California is all year round). What are your impressions?

Well, it's gone here too. 47% humidity. It's the same, except in the summer, Tampa actually gets a bit muggier and hotter, because there is less movement in the air than there is on the east coast.

ived lived in both places and the summers in tampa are way worse than miami/lauderdale...the humidity and heat in the tampa bay area is literally unbearable for 6 months while in lauderdale it wasnt quite as bad mostly due to the ocean breezes.

NE Florida seems to be the most pleasant in terms of having a cooler longer dry season, but experiencing some movement in the air during the summer.

Your right FTL. I think Tampa seems hotter in the summer too. Not enough of a cool breeze.

I agree with the Tampa area being just a bit hotter and more humid overall than Miami/Lauderdale. There is more air flow on the ocean side.

How about if you're a little more west, like in Weston? Is it notably hotter and more humid there than, say, around US1?

About a three to four degree difference. You definitely feel it, especially on a summer night (the winter nights are cooler out here). The air is still not quite as dead as it is in Tampa.
