Places to Live With Low Humidity & Altitude

Updated April 17, 2017

Areas with high humidity experience the most precipitation, and areas with high altitudes cause problems for people with heath issues due to a lack of oxygen. However, many places experience low humidity and reside in low altitude areas. The Farmer's Almanac lists some of these places and climate reports confirm that these areas offer the best location to stay dry and healthily oxidised.

Yuma, Arizona

Right on the border of Mexico and the United States, Yuma is the county seat of Yuma County in Arizona. This city only experiences 17 rainy days per year and has an altitude of 197 feet. With an average precipitation per year of 2.65 inches, Yuma offers one of the lowest humidity locations to live. Yuma also has a history of arts and culture, the Yuma International Airport and a branch of Northern Arizona University.

San Diego, California

With an altitude of only 144 feet, San Diego sits right on the Pacific Ocean and experiences average highs of 24.4 degrees Celsius in the spring and summer to about 10 degrees Celsius in fall and winter months. San Diego also has an average of 123 rain-free days during a calendar year. The bustling metropolis is the eighth-largest city in the United States, but large nature preserves like Torrey Pines State Reserve, Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve and Mission Trails Regional Park show off luscious vegetation, geographical wonders and picturesque landscapes.

Las Vegas, Nevada

With an average annual precipitation of only 4.5 inches, Las Vegas experiences low humidity and resides at an altitude of about 1,975 feet, relatively low considering the mountains and canyons that surround the casino centre of the United States. In addition, the average high temperature falls right around 26.7 degrees C. Las Vegas is also in the midst of the low-altitude national park known as Death Valley, which falls to an elevation of negative 174 feet.

El Paso, Texas

With an average high temperature of 25 degrees Celsius, El Paso experiences some of the least precipitation in the United States because of low humidity and a mid-range altitude of 3,704 feet. The arid location allows for only 9.5 inches in rainfall per year. Right on the Rio Grande, on the border of New Mexico and just across from Chihuahua, Mexico, El Paso is the home of University of Texas at El Paso and the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, as well as multiple museums and theatres.
