Escalating humidity and temperatures forced the convertable
traveling family to perspire to uncomfortable levels, but an
increase in the breeze brought comfortableness and smiles.

Close, but not quite. While not grammatically wrong, this is not how a native English speaker would say this. Particularly in the first part of your sentence, the grammar and word order is more appropriate to German than to English.

Escalating humidity and temperatures forced ("caused" might be a better choice) the family ("traveling" is optional) in the convertible (the car with a top that can go down or be removed is a convertible) to perspire uncomfortably, but an increase in the breeze brought an increase in comfort, and smiles all around.
