Temperature is of less importance for it compared to relative humidity, which is the amount of moisture in the air, but it is also very closely linked to relative humidity. So temperature is important in that it influences the amount of water vapour that the air can hold, and obviously during the summer months, the hotter the air gets or the higher the temperature is, often the drier the air will be as well. Things start to dry out more.
