No gloss after applying..

I painted the fuselage, cowl, horz stab/elevators/ ailerons and flaps no problem. Got to the top of the first wing, paint went on as usual, glossed up nice. Came back a couple of hours later and the paint had lost all it;s gloss! Perfectly flat!. What happened?

It did start to rain outside after I finished, but I was in the garage with the doors shut..Temp about 70 deg, but maybe a little humid?
  I'm afraid to repaint now if it doesn't gloss up I'll have too much paint on.
Any suggestions? I tried to call Stewart's but they are all at Oshkosh.

The temp drop and humidity rise caused the paint to blush.  You'll need to scuff sand it and shoot a fog coat/wet coat to get the shine back.
