Last June/July I was in Utah. Prior to leaving I was complaining about the daily temps I read for the area 100, 102. I will take 100 in Utah over 85 and humid on LI ANYDAY.

It's not like that all the time. We had a lot of humidity and rain the last week or 2. The forecasters got the weather all wrong last week. But it's spring and we do get a lot of rain this time of year but I've definitely experienced worse

Prepare for a humid summer, the ocean never got that cold this winter so there's going to be lots of evaporation. Lots of bugs, too.

Everything is relative. Compared to Phoenix - I'm sure it was unbearable humidity. Compared to Miami - I'm sure it was a breath of fresh air.

Florida is MUCH worse humidity wise. Try being in southern florida with 95 degree s , 100 percent humidity for a week straight. Even the pools and beach were no help because they felt like bath water.

It's funny because all people do is complain about the weather in NY... especially when it gets slightly humid. or cold. or snowy... you get the point.
You go to Florida and people don't complain all day because it's hot and humid you just shut up and go inside to the A/C. or when there's a hurricane you just put the shutters up and grab some beer...

The humidity in FL is a *****! Was at Disney in 06. The day we were leaving my wife wanted to go to the pool at the hotel. We stepped outside and the only way I could describe the humidity was like standing under a giant dog as he panted.

born and raised in south texas, i know humidity... and LI certainly has raging humidity. islands usually have significant humid yuckiness if you're 'inland'.
i agree with you, XL, orlando humidity is killer! i've lived in florida, texas, virginia - all horrid in the summer months. prescription: lots of showers and drink buckets of ice water!

I coudn't agree more. LI humidity is AWFUL! My husband and I were in south Florida all last week. The tempertature was higher and the humidity was worse on LI. My husband is from NC and I've been down there many times in the summer and it's so much worse here. I also lived in Georgia for two years and it's still worse on LI! Crazy.
