No not that!

I'm talking about the driest or lowest humidity in the State. I have an opportunity to leave high and dry Colorado for Georgia or Alabama. So, I'm posting it only one time. My job doesn't require any particular city. Would prefer rural area vs city.

In terms of precip or humidity, there are two different locations. In terms of precipitation the driest area looks to be in the area of Vidalia while the wettest is in Rabun County. (acutally among the wettest areas outside the Pacific rim area of the US and only slightly below qualifications for a temperate rainforest) While the humidity is actually reverse the two locations.

Very true.

Lowest humidity logically would be where the elevation is the highest - Blue Ridge - Dillard - Mountain City.

After reviewing the data, I've decided to not move to GA. The humidity levels would just about render me useless.

You might want to actually visit first. Numbers don't tell the story. I moved here from central Minnesota, and Georgia doesn't seem any different from up there to me, even though I know the numbers say otherwise.

It's hardly a steambath in the northern part of the state. Quite comfy, actually.

Quite comfy ? Did you live in GA during the summer of 2007 ? Sure there may be a few pleasant days in the summer, but overall it's very humid and hot in the summer in GA and the rest of the south (outside of the mountains). A typical summer day in Atlanta is about 90 degrees with high humidity. That's not what I call comfy.

What Georgia were you living in in 2007? That's the year we moved here, and it was in the middle of the drought. While there were exceptionally high temps for a few weeks, they were normally in the low 90's tops, and very dry. Coming from NJ, it was a welcome change from the humidity that lingers all night up there.

The summers since have been slightly cooler and slightly more humid, but a "typical summer day" in Atlanta is not "90 degrees with high humidity". Per the link below, we typically have only 35 days per year with temps over 90 degrees- hardly what I'd call the "typical day".

I lived in GA in the late 60's and have stayed in various cities about ten years ago. I wasn't interested in humidity, only bass fishing.That was before my arthritis problems started.
