he relative humidity usually falls when the temperature goes down. #3 (permalink) Wed Aug 22, 2007 1:39 am   he relative humidity usually falls when the temperature goes down.
 

But is there anything grammatically wrong with saying:

'The relative humidity usually will fall when the temperature goes down.'?

A little tortuous, perhaps, but grammatically no different from saying:

''The relative humidity will usually fall when the temperature goes down.'
