Why is NYC so humid?
Humidity is part of an atmospheric climate and is the measure of the amount of water vapor found in it. Having three types, absolute, specific and relative humidity, humidity measures different quantities that are essential in predicting a country’s climate. Measured using various devices and instruments, humidity has significant relations to the density of air as well as the volume gas. It was also found to have effects on animals, humans and the environment. For most places having humid weather, there are commonly found in the regions close to the equator. Places where the weather is said to be humid are cities in the South and Southeast Asia such as Korea, Manila and Bangkok. For states found in America, relative humidity is more apt and this can be found in the city of Forks and Olympia in Washington.
One interesting city found to have a humid subtropical climate is the City of New York. Located in the Northeastern part of the United States and approximately halfway between Washington D.C. and Boston, New York experiences a certain kind of climate that mostly other equatorial countries experience. New York City is so humid primarily because of its location. The patterns and cycles of water and wind make the city so hot with highly dense humidity. Predominantly situated in the eastern part of the world, New York City is mostly composed of land area, which is highly urbanized, making no space for hills and mountains. In their absence, the cycles involved in regulating the humidity in the place are affected making the city’s climate warm and humid. Also, it has partial shielding from the neighboring places that make New York City a warm place to stay in, although cold, winter seasons can still be experienced by the people.
