Why will water evaporate more slowly on humid days?
This effect is caused by the partial pressure of the water vapour in the air. The more humid the air, the more water vapour it contains and thus it has a higher partial pressure. This pressure tends to prevent water from evaporating. When the air is completely dry, there is no partial pressure from any water vapour and water will evaporate more quickly. The partial pressure of the water vapour plus the partial pressures of the other gases in the air all add up to create the total pressure of the air. It follows that water will evaporate more slowly when the total air pressure is high and evaporate more quickly when the total air pressure is low.

Why Poes water on top of a mountain boil at a lower temperature than at sea level?
It is the effect of air pressure. The air pressure at the top of a mountain is less than the air pressure at sea level. The effect of air pressure on a water surface is to prevent or oppose water molecules escaping from the surface. The greater the air pressure, the more heat energy is needed to allow the water molecules to escape and so at sea level the water will boil at a higher temperature than if it were on top of a mountain.
