To me, Raleigh N.C. has low humidity and doesn't look like a desert, but I figure you meant lower humidity than that.

How low? Do you like cool and damp? NorCal, Oregon, Washington

Any limits to how cold you'd accept it?

Summer months in the Pacific Northwest have pretty low humidity (very low on the dry, desertlike Eastern side of the Cascades of course, but also fairly low on the lush green Western side as) Places like Seattle and Portland DO get pretty high humidity, but NOT generally during the summer. Our humidity peaks during the cooler time of the year (during the winter rains).

In the 30+ plus years I've lived in the Seattle area, the number of hot, humid days I've experienced can be counted on one hand.

No, personal observation and perception.

Most afternoons are below 50% humidity inland and to me that feels a little dry. They also get more sunshine than I'm accustomed to which also helps make it feel dry. I guess I'm also comparing Raleigh NC to Myrtle Beach, SC which to me has moderate humidity, making Myrtle Beach usually feel like the Caribbean does in winter.

*I was sort of kidding regarding advice to OP, but honestly for myself central NC is barely humid at all.

Strange.

Those humidity levels are like ours, and we can get pretty humid, at least from my POV.

I'd research Western South Dakota~a semi-arid climate, but still very green except for drought years, of course.

OR, as was suggested before~Colorado.

Hi ColdCanadian,
I live in NC now and it's way too humid for me.When I speak of humidity I'm talking about the wet in the cold as well as the hot. I hate it in either. claymaster

Thank you Ken,
I don't like humidity in the cold either. It gets into my bones and I can't get warm. Just as the humidity in the heat. You can't get cool enough. I've experienced it in both and have learned that it's not the heat or the cold weather that bothers me it's the moisture in both that make it uncomfortable to me. Linda

I understand - that's why when I retire, we're moving to Arizona (already have my property).
