Seeding in heavy rain ???

Weather forecast calls for rain heavy at times. Would you still overseed? Don't mind working, concerned about losing the seed.

I've seeded & fertilized in light to moderate rain. But heavy rain can cause runoff or standing water in lawns. This may cause the seed to gather in some places which will give you thick and thin areas of growth (not prefered results). No one can totally predict mother nature, so good luck!
