A: How does humidity change with temperature?
A: If the water vapour content stays the same and the temperature drops, the relative humidity increases. If the water vapour content stays the same and the temperature rises, the relative humidity decreases. This is because colder air doesn't require as much moisture to become saturated as warmer air.
Furthermore, the specific humidity does not vary as the temperature or pressure of a body of air changes, as long as moisture is not added to or taken away from it. ... The specific humidity of saturated air (i.e., that in equilibrium with a vapour source, either water or ice) increases rapidly with increasing temperature. As air temperature increases, air can hold more water molecules, and its relative humidity decreases. When temperatures drop, relative humidity increases. ... Temperature therefore directly relates to the amount of moisture the atmosphere can hold.            Return to FAQ's
Q: Is Temperature directly proportional to humidity?
A: Relative humidity is inversely proportional to temperature. On a clear calm day, relative humidity is high during the morning hours when temperatures are low and decreases as temperatures rise during the day.                                                    Return to FAQ's
