Shut as result of muggy day (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

closed

Here is my best explanation:

'shut' is the definition.

('closed' can be a synonym of 'shut')

'muggy day' is the subsidiary indication.

'muggy' becomes 'close'.

'day' becomes 'd'.

'close'+'d'='closed'

'as result of' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for closed that I've seen before include "See 1", "successfully completed", "Resolved", "To", "Terminated", "shut up", "clinched the sale", "Shut", "Held in private" and "Exclusive".)
