Deck re-stain: weather window, timing

Our deck (not dure if it's pine or pressure treated) in mildewed and needs re-staining. Here in VA it's starting to get cool but i think i have time before cold weather hits. I am planning to use a wood brightener and pressure wash; we are expecting rain on Monday and Tuesday of this week. I'm hoping to paint in stages, to be done by next weekend. How much drying time should i count on before applying a semi-transparent stain?

Thanks!

There are several factors concerning how long it takes the wood to dry. Temperature and humidity along with air flow are the biggest factors. Sometimes you can stain the next day but it can take several days.

If you have pine decking it is pressure treated [or it wouldn't last]
