There's no question we've had very humid conditions. It's the result of warm temperatures, light rain and south to southwest winds carrying more warm, moist air from off the coast of California thanks to an onshore flow. The high humidity and low clouds that often develop absorb and then re-radiate heat back to the ground. That keeps temperatures from cooling.
