So the water lying on the thermometer evaporating in the air has no cooling effect then. It just that when I put a wet finger into the air it feels colder then. Or is it another effect. I just remember calculating humidity at school and using two thermometers - one dry and one wet and the wet one always recorded a lower temperature.
It was similar to the idea shown in the link below
