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.
I’m a roller coaster junkie, a weather enthusiast, a frequent traveler, and a numismatist. My love for coins began when I was 11 years old. I primarily collect and study U.S. coins produced during the 20th century. I’m a member of the American Numismatic Association (ANA) and the Numismatic Literary Guild (NLG). I’ve also been studying meteorology and watching weather patterns for years. I enjoy sharing little-known facts and fun stuff about coins, weather, travel, health, food, and living green… on a budget.
