Tampa residents apparently don't do so well when the heat is on.

A new study commissioned by the makers of Honeywell Fans ranks Tampa as the sweatiest city in America.

According to Honeywell officials, the rankings reveal cities that each have a unique ability to trap heat in the summer months, which contributes to overall discomfort and a need to beat the heat.    
Scientists reviewed data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association’s National Climatic Data Center and the U.S. Census Bureau and based on their expert ranking, below is a list of the top ten sweatiest U.S. cities:
1. Tampa
2. Miami
3. Houston
4. San Diego
5. Orlando
6. Washington, D.C.
7. Raleigh
8. Los Angeles
9. Dallas
10. Charlotte
"When creating the first-ever sweatiest cities ranking with this new set of criteria, we looked at a range of environmental factors including average temperature and humidity levels during summer months, population and housing density, and average wind speed, which has an evaporative cooling effect," said Dr. Ted Myatt, ScD, Environmental Health & Engineering. "Geographic location has a major influence on temperatures, but so does infrastructure like residential buildings or heavy industry, which can trap heat or contribute to heat output.  It’s no wonder why so many songs are written about hot times and summer in the city."
