Why does dry cold feel so much colder than humid cold?

So I recently moved from Texas to Colorado, and I've noticed the the temperatures here feels much colder than the same temperatures in Texas. I'm sitting outside right now and its 50 degrees Fahrenheit, but feels like below freezing back in Texas. Is there a scientific reason why dryness makes it feel so... show more So I recently moved from Texas to Colorado, and I've noticed the the temperatures here feels much colder than the same temperatures in Texas.
