It's a really different type of warmth compared to Nice, where, at least on the coast, there's both a high humidity and constant breezes, making it much more comfortable IMO
Sorry, how did I end up so off topic? Yeah, about low summer humidity. Would you say that overall Paris is humid in summer? So as to answer Sophie's question - places with 15-25°C summers with low humidity...

A. Some very strong points - lowish summer minimums, and low record highs. Humidity remains low despite summer and autumn rain peaks.
Would prefer slightly milder winters, and more rain in winter as opposed to summer, but overall could easily live here.

Yes its summers are mostly dry, at least the warm days are. Sometimes there is the odd humid day but for someome from BA or Nice it's nothing. Humidity is not the problem, it's more, like you said, the changeable temps. Plus it doesn't have nearly as much precipitation as Sophieland.

This is about as humid as it can get (4 pm):
History : Weather Underground

For the typical most humid day in a year, you take off a couple degrees from both the temp and the dew point.

Don't know, but since the summer temps around the Mediterranean are rather stable, maybe there is such a place in the highlands such as Castellane (?) that fills these criterions. The daily range would be higher than ideal and it is probably too variable as well. Not to mention that it is not for someone who craves city life.

Average for me. At least is doesn't get hot, but "cold enough" should at least have snow. And like someone else said, 60 for summertime low, a little warm.

Paris records more sunshine hours from May to August, included, than Sophieland

I always found Paris to have a quite low humidity in summer as well (except when it's raining obviously...). Some >30°C days felt way too dry for me.
oh, i didnt know Paris had that many hours of sunshie in summer. My bad. So I guess Paris in winter is really really dark.
I wouldnt mind a summer in paris, of course, it looks awesome, plus, its Paris!



Hey, im really glad that my climate has obtained so many high ratings!! Between As, Bs and Cs, they have almost 90% of the votes!

Hmm. It's mostly fine, not really as warm as warm as I'd like in the warmer half of the year, I'd raise the highs by at least a few degrees. Still a minor difference and very pleasant year around though I'd miss heat a bit. B+/A-; I'll be generous and go with an A-.
