Warmer temperatures are required to let the latex particles to coalesce, or melt together. That is why the spring and drop can be tricky periods to paint exterior. A widespread blunder is to paint when the daytime large temperature will get higher than 60° F and the nighttime temperatures get much cooler since dew types on virtually almost everything as soon as the sunshine goes down.
