Doesn't include variations in pressure but I think we can all agree on how that effects density.

Variations in altitude, followed by temperature, appear to have a much bigger impact on air density than does relative humidity.

Being from the South, I always thought relative humidity meant how much you sweat when your sister sits too close to you.

Good stuff! Looks like humidity is negligible for flight. It has much more effect on grip and a bunch of physiological and mental things. I would take it right of the chart the OP is working on filling in.

I have not played in the peak of our heat yet. Can't say I'm really looking that forward to it.
