Yikes! That makes for a 42 C heat index and a 27 C dew point.

I'm sure that if you actually lived in such a climate you'd be running back to Houston post haste!

I haven't experienced such a combination, nor do I want to. 90°F and 40% humidity isn't bad, though still hot.

I have and I loved it. I spent some time in the South of China and we had that combination during the summer I was there. As long as I had my water bottle with me, I was happier than a clam

I'm a desert dweller at heart. Perhaps periods of 50% RH from time to time would provide some variety.

No, I also would not want exactly the same conditions forever. I like somehere with a bit of seasonality.

So, I'll set a criterion for each of year:

Winter: 15C / 59F with scattered clouds, 80% humidity, 0-5mph wind. 20% or less chance of rain.

Spring: 24C / 75F and clear/sunny with 50% humidity, 10mph wind, 30% chance of rain.

Summer: 30C / 86F and mostly sunny wih 60% humidity and a high chance of a storm

Autumn: 25C / 77F and scattered clouds with 50% humidity, 15mph wind, 25% chance of rain.

Too vague really. For a better idea of what conditions I like see the "Dream Climatic Averages" thread, as it varies.

Average temps per season for Melbourne the past year

Winter 15C / 59F (2010)

Spring 22C / 72F (2009)

Summer 27C / 81F (2009/10)

Autumn 22C / 72F (2010)

Actually not too far off your dream climate temperature wise.

With an endless supply of ice-cold drinks to go with ideal weather?

96 F (36 C)
35% humidity
dewpoint of 64 F (18 C)
light winds under 10 mph (16 km/h)
milky skies diffusing sunrise and sunset... easy on the eyes
clear skies whenever the sun is at a 20+ degree angle

No endless supply of drinks?

90 F (32 C)
44% humidity
all other parameters the same; even the depoint is still identical.

I don't care what the heat index is with 96 F and 35% humidity.
I'm somewhat insensitive to humidity,
and that amount of humidity would feel dry-to-arid to me,
yet is humid enough to prevent dry, cracked skin
or to keep plants from drying out at an alarming-rate.
