It is in Toronto. Our winters are almost as cold and probably longer than Chicago's. It's all a matter of perspective, and most people that live up here hate winter, or at least by the end of January. For most people who live this far north, how severe winter may or may not seem is an afterthought. Also, most people in Toronto might feel that our "Seasonal" January weather is "frigid" or "almost frigid" with an average high of 26 F and overnight low of 12 F. That's why at least half of us are either travelling to the tropics, or at least wishing we could.

*To sum it up, "frigid" doesn't have to mean "bizarre-cold" up here, likely just a little stronger than average.

Not that there's anything wrong with that...
Just like how some Southerners feel 90 F and muggy is extremely hot while to this Canadian, the same weather feels only very warm and a little sticky.

I've never seen humidity lower than 22% when it's 90 F or above.
Usually we have 40% or higher humidity in 90+ F weather.
Humidity values can occasionally be lower than 20% during summer when we get downslope compressional winds off the Rocky Mountains. However, summer weather is usually hot and humid for us.

Many places in southeastern Australia have recorded humidites of 1% during spring last year. It is actually more common than one might think.

I didn't even think that's possible on Earth.
How do you get that? A high of 40 C with a dewpoint at -60 C?

Where I live, humidity under 30% is excedingly rare.
I believe once I've seen the humidity as low as 18%.
We probably normally 1-5 summer days with humidity in the 20% range.
Annually, we probably get less than 10 days in the 20% range.
