Summer is in full effect here and a new study shows how sweaty Tampa Bay really is!
MyDatingAdviser.com decided to dig deep into the perspiration levels of our nation. What they found out is that all hot places are not created equal. How sweaty a city really is depends more on humidity and population density than the temperature displayed on a thermometer.
Comparing 200 metro areas, MyDatingAdviser.com used three dimensions to get the statistics:
- Sweat Factors
- Cooling Off
Within each of those dimensions, they used 12 metrics of of perspiration friendliness. You can see they really did some serious number crunching and weighting to determine how a sweaty city really is! It came as no shock to us that the Sunshine State was well represented! Wipe the sweat from your eyes because these are the Top 10 sweatiest cities in the U.S.:
- Orlando, Florida
- Corpus Christi, Texas
- Baton Rouge, Louisiana
- New Orleans, Louisiana
- Tallahassee, Florida
- Houston, Texas
- Montgomery, Alabama
- Cape Coral, Florida
- Laredo, Texas
- Jacksonville, Florida
Tampa was ranked #11. Of course to all of us living here, our antiperspirant is always working overtime to keep us from dripping sweat all over the place!
