Warmth will usually increase the speed finishes dry at, and humidity over 70% will start to hamper drying because there is added moisture in the air. So in your case I’m envious of your 37% Rh.

The age of the finish will also change the time to dry, older finishes get slower to dry, but you can’t know until you can touch it to see how it is coming along.

I always say if in doubt, leave it alone, nothing can queer a project like a finish that isn’t ready.
