Frigidor Questions

I am in the process of building a frigidor from an old wine cooler I have. I have seasoned the unit and brought the humidity up to 65% and the temp is holding between 60F – 66F. The problem I am having is that whenever the cooling system turns on the humidity drops to 45% and as soon as the unit turns off the humidity slowly comes back up. Is this normal? Will this harm my cigars? Is there a way to prevent this?

I must have been on vacation when this was originally posted. There are 3 types of humidity- absolute, specific and relative. For cigars the measurement is generally relative humidity. Either the humidity being measured in the frigador is not relative or the rapid change in temperature is being reflected in wide suden changes in the relative humidity. It would probably not harm the cigars.
