Mugginess in humidity depends on what you're used to
When I lived in Massachusetts, the relative humidity in the summer was around 90-95%, and people thought they were walking around in the middle of a pond. When the humidity got down to 50%, we thought we were in heaven it was so dry. Here in Utah, the humidity is usually below 20%, and we think we are in heaven. During my run today, due to a cloudy sky and slight rain showers, the humidity was 22%, and I thought I was running in the middle of the Jordan River even though the temperature was only in the 70s (F). It's all what you get used to :) A high humidity really saps one's strength.
