The front can't get here soon enough.

According to Wunderground, the dew points at all the nearest weather stations are in the 75-78°F range, which is literally miserable.

I checked and that's also the current dew point in Miami Beach and slightly worse than current conditions in Houston or New Orleans. 

Fortunately around here it usually only does this for a few days at a whack before a front comes through and sets things to a more tolerable range. Up here it's a heat wave; down South this weather would be just another day in summer. P.J. O'Rourke described it best in Parliament of Whores:

We've had four days in the low nineties with sticky humidity and dew points in the high sixties, but tomorrow should be only eighty or so and considerably less humid.
