    A humidity change is not going to affect you much, at that range a 50% humidity change is only gong to give you a few FPS change and maybe a 1/10th MOA change if that.

    Are you keeping track of your shooting data, this would let you track down any issues that would be related to shooting conditions like temp, baro, wind direction and such. If I get a huge swing I usually missed one of the basic data inputs, or got the range wrong.
