It's all relative. Chicago is much less humid than say, DC. And the Lakefront's (Streeterville) cooling effect make it cooler than the 'burbs.
Telling someone from Oregon that Chicago isn't that humid because DC is worse is like telling someone from SoCal that Chicago isn't that cold because Omaha hits -30. It's humid, and it's cold.

I shall assume that Chicago is like that year-round.
It was 34F yesterday (28 in the morning).
OTOH, it was 71F on December 3.
