As the State Climate office for Florida, we often get questions about living with high humidity. Many people suffer from respiratory illness or other health problems that are affected by humidity and they are trying to find a suitable climate to move to. The most common questions are:
Is Florida the most humid state in the nation?
Is There a Part of Florida that is Less Humid than Others?
