To that end, dew point is a much much easier gauge of how humid it will feel than relative humidity. So many people erroneously say things like "It's 95 degrees out with 95 percent humidity". Horse hockey. In reality that "95 percent humidity" is in actuality 45 to 50 percent. 45 percent humidity in the winter feels fine. 45 percent humidity in the summer feels oppressive.

So much easier with dew point:

50s and lower feel great

60s progressively stickier

70s are oppressive

80s would probably kill me.
