Too little humidity may mean dry skin and a ‘crisp’ feeling outdoors.
Here’s a look at the issue of air pressure and humidity in a nutshell:
- High pressure is a mass of descending (sinking air) and, usually, lower humidity. Sinking air and relatively lower humidity are major reasons why high pressure is often associated with fair weather.
- Low pressure is a mass of rising air. Relative humidity is usually higher in areas of low pressure; low pressure enables the air mass to hold more water at high altitudes and thus enhances the chances for storms.
