When to Paint Exterior of the House

Posted By: sly
Friday, 1 September 2000, at 10:48 a.m.

I would like to paint the exterior of my house (primarily masionite material) over the Labor Day weekend, but the temperature has been in the 100's during the day. In the morning and late afternoon/evening, the temperature will be down in the 80's or below. The humidity level is between 20-65% at all times.

Is it okay to paint say during the morning and in the late afternoon when the temperature is more tolerable or will I still risk the chance of the paint not curing correctly? I believe, the paint and primer manufacturer recommends 50-90 degree and 50-70% humidity.
