Can You Believe THIS WA Town is One of America’s Most Humid?
If I hadn't read the report, I wouldn't believe it. Did you know there are two cities in the top 50 list of most humid cities in America. Seriously.
Today's Homeowner has ranked the most and least humid cities in America.
I was shocked to see that Quillayute is #11 on the list with 89% average annual relative humidity. What? I'm embarrassed to admit that I'm not familiar with this city. Never heard of it. However, the Quillayute River is one of the main rivers on the Olympic Peninsula.
I Googled, and found that Quillayute is located just west of Forks. The second city on the list of most and least humid cities in the nation is our state capitol, Olympia, at #17 with 88% relative humidity. Believe it or not, there are also two cities in Oregon that make the list of top 50. Astoria comes in at #32 and Eugene is ranked at #33. One of the reason's I enjoy living in Washington is because of the dry heat. I love the desert. The least humid city in the nation is Las Vegas at 36% average annual relative humidity.
Which is the most humid city or town you've experienced?
I spent my childhood in Minnesota, where the summers are famous for HIGH humidity. It was great because you could always cool off in a lake. But, mosquitoes were an issue. Winters are brutally cold. I've lived in a few other states that were humid as well, including Illinois, and Florida.
