How does a change in temperature affect relative humidity and specific humidity?
When the temperature of air is cooled or reduced the relative
humidity (RH) increases. The moisture content of the air remains
the same until the RH rises to the point of 100% saturation and

How does altitude affect humidity?
Higher altitudes tend to have higher relative humidity. That is because relative humidity is determined by the amount of water in the air divided by the maximum amount the air at the current temperature can hold. Therefore the relative humidity is only affected by the temperature. The link to altitude is that higher altitudes tend to have lower temperatures, and the air at lower temperatures can hold less water. Therefore the denominator in the relative humidity is less making the relative humidity higher.

How does the temperature and the humidity related to affect each other?
Relative Humidity is the ratio of the mass of vapour present in a certain volume of air to the mass of water vapour required to saturate the same volume of air at the same temperature. Another way of defining relative humidity is related to dew point. I.e relative humidity=s.v.p at dew point over s.v.p at air temperature multiply by 100%. And dew point is dependent upon prevalent atmospheric conditions like TEMPERATURE,wind and the amount of water vapour in the atmosphere.

How does temperature affect humidity?
Temperature does have a direct effect on relative humidity. ( just to make the water vapor move faster when war and slower when cool). As temperature goes up, the ability of the air to hold more gas goes up, so relative humidity goes down (unless more water vapor is being added). very good answer if you don't trust it. i got an A on a take home test with this answer Temperature affects humidity when they take place in the Dew point when water vapour changes to liquid. At this temperature humidity is high. The higher the temp, the more water vapor can be carried in air. Thus if you heat air (as is done in the winter) the relative humidity drops ... the air seems dryer even though the total amount of water vapor is unchanged.

What is the affect of cooling on humidity ratio?
Cooler air cannot hold as much water vapor as the same volume of warmer air, so as the air temperature drops, the relative humidity increases, even when the amount of water vapor in a certain volume of air, or absolute humidity, remains unchanged. If the relative humidity reaches 100%, the air has all the water vapor that it is able to hold. If the temperature continues to drop beyond that point, the excess moisture in the air condenses as dew or frost.
