I have a home humidifier on my furnace we set it at 40% in the winter.
High humidity is fine. Higher temperatures...I dunno. People say Taiwan and Guangzhou/Hong Kong area ideal places to age tea, and it gets just as hot and humid there, so...*shrug* perhaps you're in good conditions.
Others also say that pu'er likes alternating humidity conditions: wet then dry then wet and so on, so the east coast seems like a pretty decent place to age it.
Just keep it away from smells...if you're attic is musty or smells gross, I'd avoid it, lest your tea taste like your attic over time...
