Humidity plays havoc with gloss finishes. I’ve had stuff behave like that just by spraying right before dusk when the sun is just starting to set and the humidity is rising. I always make sure to spray in the middle of the day now, and make sure there is no chance of rain. I will also bring it into the house in a conditioned environment as soon as I possibly can; sometimes immediately after spraying, and letting it hang to dry. As mentioned, just let it fully cure, maybe hit it with a light sanding, and re-spray when the humidity is lower.
