Painting inside garage on wet and rainy day

So finally get spring break from school and plan to paint my motorcycle, BUT the days I'm off of work and plan to do it are rainy days. I'm going to be painting in our big heated garage and I know cold weather makes for longer drying times, but what are the effects of painting in high humidity weather?

I'm impatient and want to finish painting so I can fill the tank with gas and stop any rusting that I just got rid of. I still have that young person impatientness

The weather does not have any effect on todays paints, in fact a rainy day will help hold down the dust contamination.

rainy day

I'd be more concerned with the air temperature and the surface temperature. I never paint with the temp below 65 degrees. I look forward to painting on rainy days, it keeps the dust down.

Rainy days are THE BEST time to paint in a garage, all the dust outside is kept down.....
TIPS:
Hose your floor down and let it dry ...
painting on a wet floor can cause its own set of problems...
if its getting late wait,at night the bugs come out and they love fresh paint...
Mix your paint and use your wax&grease remover right before you paint to get any moisture of the parts as an added precaution....
USE A TACK RAG ....You can get one at any hardware store....

ME????? Personally I never worry about a having problem unless I have one.My wife does that with the bills she'll worry all month every month for no reason they always get paid and it was all for nothing...
ALL my best (dirt free) paint jobs were done when it was raining or shortly there after.always have been. but PLEASE, do explain iso clumping.I've never heard of it.because I've never had the problem.. .

you get too far into the high end of humidity and urethane's will try to kick in the air. looks like fine trash in the paint.

That would be in the clear?Wait a minute, Barry was telling me about that.
it happens sometimes when you wet the floor and paint thats why I said wash the floor and let it dry.

I'd paint it....Just by coincidence I'm doing a bike this week too just started stripping the tank Saturday.Once its ready I might wait till it rains but it only seems to rain when you don't want it too,I'm doing it at home also.
