Humidity and Painting

I am ready to final prime and paint my 26 T coupe body. Fenders, doors, hood, hood sides, running boards, and aprons, everything else, are all already painted and cut. Just need buffed. The last piece, the body, is in the temporary booth. All masked off, ready to go.
It's raining and supposed to rain until Tuesday with the accompanying high humidity, 90+%. I built a dessicant dryer that is working pretty well to control the moisture in the compressed air, but I am wondering if there are any other ill effects caused by the high humidity?
I hate to wait until next week, but maybe that's the more prudent move. I guess I could finish the buffing while I wait.
Oh yeah! I'm using SPI epoxy for primer and acrylic enamel with hardener.
What do you guys think?

I say if you can wait for more favorable conditions, do.
