Meteorology 101: Cold air can't hold as much water as warmer air. Relative humidity is the amount of water in the air compared to the maximum amount POSSIBLE at that temperature. So, down at 2 deg (I assume you mean F) the air can barely hold any water at all, thus the high relative humidity number.
Now back to our regularly scheduled shivering and waiting for spring....
Happy new year to all!
