Congrats, Atlanta? We’ve been named the seventh-sweatiest city in the country.
A Honeywell Fans study determined which cities across the nation have the greatest sweat potential.
Ted Myatt, who led the study last week, explained how it was done in a news release:
To identify the sweatiest cities across the nation, we looked at data in a number of national records to determine the percentage of homes without central air conditioning, the popularity of public transportation and citywide bike sharing programs, as well as the cities with the ‘hottest’ professions. Similar to previous reports, information from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association and the U.S. Census Bureau were used to determine a city’s average summer temperatures and population density when identifying the 2017 Sweatiest Cities.
Where else can Americans expect to feel the effects of the summer's heat? Below is a list of the top ten sweatiest U.S. cities:
1. New York.
10. New Orleans.
