Always check the weather.
As dew point and relative humidity increase, evaporation of solvent from the paint will be reduced, increasing drying time. Failing to observe the manufacturer's recommended drying times can result in coating failure, including improper drying, wrinkling, and loss of adhesion.
Always avoid extreme temperature conditions. High temperatures will reduce drying times and can make application more difficult. Most bottom paint manufacturers recommend application below 95°F.
Low temperatures will increase drying time. Most bottom paints shouldn't be applied below 50°F.
Always check the manufacturer's technical data sheet to determine the minimum and maximum temperature ranges.
