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.
