Think about this, there are thousands of 3 season cottages that have hardwood and laminate, they don't have any problems. Laminate is just compressed paper (wood fibre)and glue, it's very stable.
Yes it will swell if you pour water on it, but I've never seen it swell from normal moisture in the air. Also winter does not have a lot of air moisture, you have way more moisture in the summer time.
If you want to be 100% sure, check with the manufactures, as every laminate have different spec's.
