Would be interesting to see if there were a difference in skin cancer ratesClouds are nothing but water in the air!
So yes, the lakes to our west contributes a lot of water into the air. And unlike in the west where big high mountain ranges strips the water from the air as it passes through, the air gets to keep the water as it drift around the northeast (and eventually goes out to sea).
That water, sometimes drop as rain, sometimes not, is what keeps our mountain green. I wouldn't want it any other way.

East vs West
In Jersey yes.I've not read any credible data on skin cancer rate east vs west.
It's more complicated than just the amount of sun or cloud though. The population out west are probably more likely to do more outdoor activity too. So that also contributes to increase exposure, cloud or not.
The east, on the other hand, could easily make up the "short fall" by those spending hours in tanning salon! ;-)
