2012 automatic shifting and humidity.....relationship?

I live in MN. My 2012 HB has 13000 miles.

I noticed that when it got more humid out over the last two weeks, the transmission has been acting funny.

Seems that the car stutters and will shift hard into 2nd gear. Then throughout the acceleration period, it'll shift a little harder between gears.

In addition, the car seems to stutter in first gear when doing a rolling stop (like a "California stop") or if releasing the gas to coast and then restart at very low MPH.

When it's not so humid, this doesn't seem to happen and never happend all during the winter (I bought my car in August 2012 so it hasn't seen high humidity).

Is there a possible relationship? Worth bringing it in to the dealer?

Any thoughts would be appreciated. This seems different than what's been described in other popular automatic transmission threads (but maybe not, I'm not an expert).
