Could you also translate "vochtig" with "moist"?

Duo rejects 'moist'...

I don't agree with Susande. Moist is typically vochtig as in a moist cloth or a moist cake. Humid is typically used for the weather

True, but there is a connection, of sorts - we do speak of moisture in the air: 'It's humid because there is a lot of moisture in the air'

Ik weet het... Ik heb ook in Schotland gewoond... ;)

'here' and 'over here' can be used both in this case.
