In this study, Parametric linear regression and nonparametric Mann-Kendall test were employed for detecting the seasonal and annual trends in Relative Humidity (RH) time series at seven stations in Duhok province in Kurdistan region of Iraq. The annual RH results indicate a decreasing trend at all stations except Duhok station, whereas the significance trend was observed at Mangesh station by (-0.144 %/year). The seasonal analysis shows a significant decreasing trend in RH at Akre and Amedy stations during summer season, the trends was negative at most of stations.
