Okay so most of us believe that 90F is very hot, well actually a day that has a high temp of 90F. These temperatures are generally recorded in the shade. So some people might say that exposure to full sunshine can make it feel warmer. I would say it is true (technically). However, there is more to it than just that. So like I said, we think that a day with a high temp of 90F is a very hot day, but when we say that's very hot, we are talking about how it feels out in the sun, not the shade. Think about it, it's pretty rare to have "hot shade", shade that feels hot.

I do agree with 90 being very hot, but 90 is about the point where shade starts feeling hot, trust me it can!

90F is still hot in shade. Definitely with humidity, but not as much if it's dry.

In the shade, and warm/hot weather (70+), the "more humid = feels hotter" is more noticable. In the sun, especially high and strong intense sunlight, the "feels hotter" mitigates the humidity effect. Even if it's 10% humidity 105F with heat index lower than the actual temp, the real feel is higher than actual temp, if it's with strong sun.

It seems like u did not read a single word that I said in my original post. Besides, I did not say anything about humidity.

No 90F in the shade is not hot, only hot out in the sun

No, 90ºF is still hot in the shade and especially if there is high humidity. Might not be baking but it is still quite warm/hot.
