Installing Tyvek House Wrap

I want to install Tyvek House Wrap to/around the sheathing of my son's tree house tomorrow. We just had rain tonight. Should I let the sheathing dry before installing the wrap, or is it okay to install if the sheathing is damp from the rain?

Thanks

Tyvek is not a vapor barrier, instead it is vapor permiable. So even if your sheathing is wet, the tyvek will allow that moisture to evaporate.
