"Tennessee winters are humid? Is this true? If so, that would be the dreariest of all. I expect winter to be cold and long (slightly upstate NY) but never humid. Most years we luck out and the humidity doesn't kick in until June, sometimes late June. Humidity alone has made me reconsider my love for summer as a kid"


Generally, the whole east coast suffers from high humidity - pretty much
all year. The colder climates see the humidity as snow in winter - wet snow. The
southern climates see the humidity as cold rain in winter. And in between there are
ice storms in the winter.

Go west if you want to avoid humidity.


I recall Buffalo over to Watertown, NY as heavy snow areas - wet snow in the
early season and dry only after the lakes froze over.
