Corona discharge

I was riding my bike under some power-lines that were giving off a loud buzz -- indicative of "corona discharge." The baffling thing is that such buzzing is usually associated with higher humidity or pollution levels.

Humidity isn't all that high right now (about 20% -- it gets a lot lower in the summer) and pollution, while a lot higher than what we enjoyed on Guam (unless the neighbors were burning their garbage), isn't at an alert level, either.

Anyone have insight as to why the lines might be buzzing so loudly now?
