I moved from Houston to Ft Lauderdale, then to Tampa over a 2 year period. I found Tampa to be slightly more comfortable in the summer that Houston OR Ft Lauderdale, due the sea breeze. Tampa wins hands down on air quality. There were days in the summer in Houston when it literally hurt to breathe.

I talked to my gf today and she was saying that she had her windows open early this morning. Were you able to do that in the Tampa area (which isn't far from her in Largo I believe). Is it really possible to open windows in the early am or pm?
I open mine when it is raining (not pouring ) as it is the only time I can without making my AC curse me. So usually in the pm during or right after the afternoon thundershowers, but the last few days we had rainy mornings, so yes it really is possible.

On average during the summer Houston will be about 4-5 degrees warmer than Tampa but Tampa's humidity will be about 7-8% higher than Houston.

Air quality is another story. Tampa is far better for air quality based on EPA data. Harris County is one of the worst areas of Texas for air quality.

Amazing. What a treat that would be! Thanks.

I picked Houston to compare to Tampa because I live in Corpus Christi and not many know what it's like here. Houston has horrid air quality, Corpus has very clean air. They tried to rezone Texas to include us with Houston so that their air quality would show better and that didn't go over well at all.
The problem with the air in Corpus is the allergins that blow across the open land of Texas and meet the Gulf air where they clash and dump all the trash on us. Everyone sounds like they have a cold and mostly it's allergies. Thank goodness we finally got rain. It should calm it down

Coming from Seattle (highest humidity in the nation) I honestly don't notice the humidity down here. Heat yes but I love it!
