First, if you are using an analog hygrometer, get a digital one instead. Next, replace the discs with beads (preferably Heartfelt). Another thing you can do if you still have problems is to check the humidor seals.

A big part of the problem may be that you live in a desert zone. Perhaps some home humidification would help. Also make sure the humidor is not exposed to direct sunlight.
Cigars to ashes, ashes to dust,
No matter the cost, smoke we must.
