Why it is uncomfortable during humid hot day?

Your brain makes you think you are uncomfortable when it is too hot, because excessive heat messes with some body functions. Sweating cools you down when your sweat evaporates, but if it is too humid, no evaporation occurs.

Why do people feel cooler on a hot dry day than on a hot humid day?
On a hot humid day the air circulation is heldup by the moisture density present in the air. the air gains weight and will not move . where as on a dry hot day the air is lighter and travels freely. * * * * * The air on a hot humid day holds much more moisture than on a hot dry day. As a result, your perspiration will evaporate much more quickly on a dry hot day and the process of evaporation will require heat equivalent to the latent heat of vaporisation. A lot of this heat will be taken from your body and that is why you will feel cooler.
