Installing shingles over wet felt

We are installing about 7 squares of shingles on an outbuilding. The old shingles were torn off and the felt/ice dam material were installed during dry weather. We also applied shingles to about 3/4 of one side before the rain started. It wan't a lot - just enough to get things wet. But the forecast calls for off and on rain for the next week, and it's supposed to remain mostly cloudy for a while, and we don't have time to wait for ideal conditions. Will applying black shingles over damp tar paper cause a problem? The building is not insulated, if that matters. Thanks!

It's recommended that you wait for the felt to dry, but it's not uncommon at all to go ahead and roof. It's done all the time.
You shouldn't have a problem.
