Powdery mildew is starting to show up. This is one of the diseases that doesn't need wet leaves to start up; it appears when humidity is high.

You can control it by selecting plants that are resistant, or applying a fungicide (like neem oil) in very early morning or evening hours (not in the heat of day).
