    Using PVC glue and primer in the rain

    Hi guys...looking for advice again. I am almost finished plumbing my pool and all my equipment and fittings but have 2 more joints to glue outside. I want to finish it up today, but it's raining here. Can I still use the PVC primer and glue in the rain (there will be drops of water on the connecting pipe and fittings no matter how hard I try to dry it), or am I wasting my time and won't get a proper joint if there is any water at all?
