No, definitely not true at all. But considering that our winter highs hover around freezing, it's just foggy and damp. But IMO the occational wind from the sea is the worst, not humidity.

Doesn't make a big difference to be honest. Jokioinen observatory is inland, has no bodies of water nearby and also averages 89%. Lahti is on a ice-age ridge, averages 87%. Sodankylš in Lapland averages 84.6%.

Pretty uniform humid in Finland.

Yes, you can really feel the humidity. Even smell it sometimes.

Well, I don't find this very attractive. A few days before Christmas:


Look at the cathedral clock. 13:40 and feels like evening.

"We lost time, check my watch. 9 minutes. That's what happens - the time stops?" Pun for chicagogeorge.

Last days of November 2013:

It's beautiful when there's snow. That I don't like. It drags on for too long. No snow pictures from this winter obviously, as we didn't have any and my camera's recharger is broken.

These are from 27 November 2014:






Middle of the day, and you can see from the traffic signs and reflectors that I used the flash.


This is nicer:

Yes the last pictures are nice. Of course snow is great in winter but I love fog too.
Ioannina in winter. Fog, rain, clouds, frost and sometimes but rarely snow. Photos are not mine. They are from two of my friends

I do usually have the windows open during the day in winter (unless it's cold) but it has little effect as homes in Malta are built with a single layer of limestone blocks, which absorb water. Every wall has a ventilation grill at the top too...
