There is nowhere in KY with 40% or less humidity. In fact there's nowhere in the entire US, east of the Missouri River, with humidity as low as you want. It was a dumb post, and sometimes those don't get answered.

Kentucky Average daily relative humidity: 70%
S. Carolina Average daily relative humidity:71-75%
N. Carolina Average daily relative humidity:71%
Virginia Average daily relative humidity:68%

I think those are the four states you listed in your post. Most of the humid/very hot weather in this section of the country is between June and September. I think what summer so bad is the combination of heat and humidity (80 degrees and 90% humidity is HORRIBLE). Fall and Spring generally are very nice and winters are mild compared to northern parts of the country. Hope this helps.

Hey mgpiner,

I'm originally from CA and am searching for a mountain area to retire to after 28 years in TX's humidity and heat.

I wouldn't be as concerned about the percentage but would concentrate on the comfort index level instead. The percents can differ so during the day. Most mornings in all these areas, there will be higher humidity which might be the reason why the one poster listed them so high. They all go down during the day, usually. In Central TX, we can have 90% humidity one day when the gulf moisture reaches the area but then another day, it can be in the 20%to 30% range although that is during a drought. It's still hotter than blazes.

Remember the humidity anywhere will be 90 to 100% when it rains, but that doesn't mean the temperature is going to make it uncomfortable. Most people don't complain when the humidity is high if the temperature is cool. That's a no brainer. Duh!! It's only in the hot weather when the discomfort is felt if the humidity is high.

Anyway, I've done much looking and if one checks the area he or she would like to relocate on Moderator cut: linking to competitors sites is not allowed, the comfort index of any particular area is listed. Such as where I live in TX, the comfort index is 24. This is based on humidity during hot months of the year. The higher the index, the better. The average in the U.S. is 44.

Anyway, I'm checking out areas in NC, VA, WV, TN, and now KY and find Pikeville to have an index of 41, Louisa, 40, and Ashland, 39. Bowling Green is 34 as is Hopkinsville, and Eddyville, 28. Yikes!! Now Eddyville is almost as bad as where I live.

So your question was a very intelligent one; you and I are on the same wavelength for sure. Not every location in each state is the same when humidity is concerned, so hopefully this post will help you decide where your next home will be.

I wish you the best on your move. Take care!!

Humidity is bad in Ky, Tn, NC, Sc, Va, ect. due partly to the The Appalachian Mountains from New York through Northern Georgia blocking wind currents (unlike coastal areas). Check out www.wunderground (broken link) (weather underground) to research humidities and find an area you prefer. Maybe the NC/SC Outerbanks. Good luck. No question is a dumb question!
