If it was in a case with a humidifier during the santa annas, it should be fine. Playing it won't cause it to dry, and if the weather's fine now than I don't see why you shouldn't take it out. If it doesn't have a humidifer and it's already cracked, then... there's not much you can do to prevent a crack anymore, is there? Just hope it's not anywhere important.

I'm pretty sure as long as you put it up with a humidifier when you aren't playing, you'll be okay.

i just throw a dampit in the body when playing...usually doesnt affect sound too much just make sure you dont have one that oozes water and you'll be fine...
