Physical Sciences As the temperature of air increases, it has a greater capacity to hold moisture. However, humidity can only increase if there is a supply of moisture. For the area of southern Florida, a random sample of days was obtained and the relative humidity (x, a percentage) and daily temperature (y, in °F) were recorded for each.17
