Weather for Tucson, AZ (8:00 PM):

87°F
Cloudy
Wind: E/SE at 12 mph
Humidity: 41%

That, to me, is perfect weather ... if it was 1 PM in the afternoon. Is there any place in the US where these conditions are the norm for the late spring/summer/early autumn seasons?

It wouldn't be the norm here in DFW, but it would be possible. Right now, it's 74 degrees at 3:00 pm, but this summer has been cooler than most.

Sounds like Chicago's mid-to-late June, July and August weather. Sometimes the humidity is higher (especially in early am and late pm) sometimes its lower.

Sorry to be silly, but try saying "Tucson Monsoon" ten times quickly.

Good tongue-twister.

And for the record, I would be delighted by monsoon rains if I lived in the desert. But I hate deserts so I would never live in one.

Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas. It's called DFW by locals.

That's how it is here, too. Daytime humidity levels are usually <30% here, but once the sun goes down it can get pretty muggy indoors.

It's not that I don't like monsoon storms, I do, I just wish we'd have this kind of weather without the floods, bugs and occasional power outages that come with it!

Oh, I get ya.

Yes, in this year of endless rain in Texas the mosquitoes are so bad that I've received at least a thousand bites in the past 4 months. And when trees are knocked down, power gets knocked out, and you can't open your door without a bunch of bizarre alien bugs swooping in, then you do tend to wish that you were living at an elevation of 10,000 feet, or maybe on the west coast.

Every place has its problems. But without the monsoon, the SW wouldn't be nearly as beautiful as it is.

And the Harvester is correct. Austin's a beautiful city Harvester. If I weren't so entrenched here in DFW, I could see myself living there.
