Congratulations Fayetteville, you've made the top 50 Sweatiest Cities in the Country list!

Ah summer in Fayetteville, where the sweat is so bad, we’ve now been recognized as one of the sweatiest cities in the entire country.

The good folks at mydatingadvisor.com put together a list of the sweatiest cities in the country, among the top 200 largest metro areas. And Fayetteville came in at number 46 on the list, the second sweatiest city in North Carolina. Charlotte as at 42.

So what is it that makes a city the sweatiest in the country? Well, a lot of things were taken into account in the study. A common theme in most of the top cities however, is that they are mostly in high humidity areas. We know all about that.

The study measured things like average summer temperatures, how long the summer season lasts, relative humidity, days above 90 degrees, exercise rates, population density and a lot more.

“In order to determine the sweatiest cities in the nation, MyDatingAdviser.com compared 200 of the largest metro areas across three key dimensions: 1) Weather, 2) Sweat Factors and 3) Cooling Off. We evaluated each of those dimensions using 12 relevant metrics of perspiration friendliness.”

With all that taken into account, Fayetteville came in just below Augusta, Georgia on the list, and just above Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

So here’s a look at where the sweatiest cities in the country and in North Carolina are, including Fayetteville.
