Keeping bees in the nuc for a while vs transferring them on a rainy day?

Keeping bees in the nuc for a while vs transferring them on a rainy day?

Just picked up my first nuc last weekend! Getting some conflicting information on when to transfer into my hive. The nuc has been in their current box for about three weeks (our guy forgot to notify us when they first arrived). Everything I’ve read says to transfer them on a sunny day mid day while the bees are likely to be out of the hive.

The weather forecast is clouds and rain for the next week here in the pnw. I don’t want to to leave them in there much longer but not sure how bad it would be to move them in less than ideal weather.

Best advice? Any other pros and cons I should be aware of?
