Record-scratch....

To be fair I have pretty much only spent time in Rochester and environs in the summer (grandparents had a cottage on Sodus Bay)...and thus don't have a great frame of reference for what it's like to live through a winter there....

But Summer weather up there is basically perfect. It is, without a doubt, less muggy and stagnant than it is here. No question. The Lake Effect during summer tends to provide tempering breezes (hence the theme park "Sea Breeze" no?)

I remember being at a 4th of July cookout at my uncle's place in Pittsford (not near the lake) and it was probably around 85 degrees and everyone else was like "omg it's sooo haaaaht"........ it would have been a refreshingly comfortable day for July in central/eastern NC.

Moving to NC to from Upstate NY to escape cold and snowy winters makes sense.

Making the same move to "escape" hot, humid summers is probably one of the most counterproductive and counter-intuitive things one could do.

I know OP said they don't want to move out West...but if you're looking for warmer winter weather with non-humid summer weather; you're pretty much going to have to because the latter won't be found anywhere in the southeast.
