I would say yes, but unless you drive the car through puddles, you aren't likely to get rust in the hard to scrub spots. If the car just sits, the humidity will get you in the long run, but not like salty roads and winter driving would.
As an example, I've got a project 300SEL in storage in Wyoming, and prior to the car going to me, it sat about 20 years in both the mountains of Colorado and the open air of Wyoming. The paint is hashed and I'll have surface rust to contend with, but the structural areas, the areas covered in undercoating and such, are all still good.
