Which Florida city is the most muggy? Not Orlando. Say what you want about the lack of sea breeze here, but in reality summer is brutal no matter which city you live in here. However, we have a longer period of truly comfortable weather than our friends in South Florida, and even Tampa, going by the Dew Point measurement...


Dew Point

Dew point is often a better measure of how comfortable a person will find the weather than relative humidity because it more directly relates to whether perspiration will evaporate from the skin, thereby cooling the body. Lower dew points feel drier and higher dew points feel more humid.

Miami obviously has the longest period of feeling the nasty muggy weather,but Orlando summers are just brutal,worse than any of the cities in Florida due to it being inland.I'm down in Miami and hate hot weather and I've been comparing our temps down here to the areas around Jacksonville,like St.Augustine and I'm amazed how much cooler they are right now on a daily basis.Orlando is still not too constantly cool but that NE corner of Florida just seems like the most comfortable for my taste.

Sorry, I don't believe of any of this for a second. Anyone who has spent anytime in Florida would know that summer is worse in terms of heat/humidity at the center point of the state. Though it will not lower temperature, an ocean breeze feels much like a fan....evaporating perspiration, which in turn feels cooler.

If Orlando's summers are as bad as it gets in Florida then the "it's too muggy here" crowd need to go and visit truly landlocked southern cities like Atlanta, Charlotte, Greenville, and Raleigh. Those places are miserable in summer and they lack the over abundance of natural springs, lakes, water parks, and proximity to the beach that Orlando has to keep one cooled off.

I disagree. Having lived all over FL, I think the landlocked areas of places like Orlando and Gainesville are MUCH worse in the summer. Gainesville, in particular, can also have much worse winters than the coastal areas being inland. I've seen frost on my car before when it hit the teens in gainesville with the wind chill.

The coastal areas provide moderation in both the summer and winter. If you really want to see the extreme opposite of that, check out the seasons in the midwest where the summers can be more brutal than FL, and the winters obviously the same with snow, sleet, hail etc.

I was in Atlanta two summers ago during one of the major heat waves and wow, coming from a place like Florida, I was shocked at how much more intense it can get.

This past summer in Florida prompted me to find a new home. 16 years of HUMIDITY hell is enough.

FL has nothing on TX. I was in Austin last august and it was 108 with some humidity. Felt like an oven and never felt that anywhere along the FL coast.

However it lasts a third to half of the time it does here, with three other seasons. It's all about preferences, and some prefer the variety of seasons.
