Interior pine doors don't shut.
Most of the time when dry weather returns they will return to their original size and work properly.
Also check the hinge screws to insure they are not loose.
I installed some wood screen doors ( dsealed all six sides) in early August or late July.
Then it got very humid here on the coast for a week and the owners couldn't opoerate the doors so I refitted them to a close shave.
Today, after a week of cooler dryer weather, I went back to do something else and one of the two doors was so loose that the latch bolt barely caught to hold it closed anymore. There must have been a good 3/16" of shrinkage in three weeks.
