We base the humidity comfort level on the dew point, as it determines whether perspiration will evaporate from the skin, thereby cooling the body. Lower dew points feel drier and higher dew points feel more humid. Unlike temperature, which typically varies significantly between night and day, dew point tends to change more slowly, so while the temperature may drop at night, a muggy day is typically followed by a muggy night.
Tapejara experiences extreme seasonal variation in the perceived humidity.
The muggier period of the year lasts for 6.3 months, from October 15 to April 24, during which time the comfort level is muggy, oppressive, or miserable at least 14% of the time. The muggiest day of the year is February 9, with muggy conditions 56% of the time.
The least muggy day of the year is July 20, when muggy conditions are essentially unheard of.

Tapejara is further than 200 kilometers from the nearest reliable weather station, so the weather-related data on this page were taken entirely from NASA's MERRA-2 satellite-era reanalysis . This reanalysis combines a variety of wide-area measurements in a state-of-the-art global meteorological model to reconstruct the hourly history of weather throughout the world on a 50-kilometer grid.
The temperature and dew point estimates are corrected for the difference between the reference elevation of the MERRA-2 grid cell and the elevation of Tapejara, according to the International Standard Atmosphere .
