Weather and Rosin

Over many years, I have noticed that when the weather is very dry my Violin can sound scratchy, and when the humidity increases the nicer sounds are easier to make. Now, I am not saying that your analysis isn't always accurate, but the way the rosin contacts the string is affected by the moisture content of the air.

And, want to add, I have noticed the same characteristic both in Europe and the Americas.

Thank you
