 Kinetic energy is directly proportional to the absolute temperature and the number of molecules possessing higher energies increases with increase in temperature, i.e., most probable kinetic energy increases with increase in temperature. Energy of activation is related to temperature by the following Arrhenius equation 

Thus, it also shows an increase with  rise in temperature.
