The front door to my house gets stuck on humid days. How can I prevent this?

I live in Philadelphia and recently we have had rediculously humid days. On these days I am unable to open my front door from the inside. I just cant generate the force necessary by pulling on the doorknob. I usually need to walk around to the outside and hip check the damn thing open.
I don't want to replace the door because in the colder months and less humid days the door is fine. I fear that if I replace the door in a humid time, it will be drafty later.
I believe the door is the original one that came with the house when built in 1960-61. Solid wood, completely painted.
Is there anything I can do to remedy this situation?
