Why do hot and humid summer days feel hotter than hot and dry summer days?

either thermodynamic potential of air is larger? or the hypostatic temperature is greater?

Stick your hand in a 200 degree oven for a few seconds. Then stick your hand in 200 degree (almost boiling) water for a few seconds. Which one feels hotter?

Due to humidity you sweat too much and dehydrate very fast then in dry summer days. If you compare the temp it remains the same but conditions differ.

Humidity slows down your ability to evaporate sweat, making you feel hotter. it is the evaporation of sweat that cools you down when humidity is low.
