Bear Island in Norway has 92% humidity in July. Is there anywhere in the world with a month with an average relative humidity higher than that?

In terms of RH, the most most "humid" place in Australia is Macquarie Island, which also happens to be one of the world's worst climates.

I quoted the word humid because when I think of humid, I think of tropical climates, sweating, mugginess, high temps, not a cold subarctic hellhole.

The OP asked about relative humidity, not dew points.

Just look back 4 posts and you'll see.

Interesting. Is this a direct result of the high rainfall? What are some other places with similar level of humidity?

Hong Kong in July is a sauna. Looks like I need to wax every day and turn on the AC at full blast to stay comfortable there.

That's high! Does London feel very hot in the summer due to the extreme humidity?
