Question
Inside Temp is 67f, but going to covered porch is 64f & feels warmer than inside.  No fans or wind.  Is this humidity?

Answer
Roberta,

It could be humidity, but without actually being there, it is impossible to determine this exactly. Is there any sunlight coming onto the covered porch? That could have a big effect...limited sunlight vs. no sunlight. Generally, with all things being equal, dry air feels cooler than moist air.

Sincerely,
