Best weather conditions for dyno runs?

I have an appointment later today to get my car dynoed. It is one of those wet rainy days here. It is only 48 degrees F, 80% humidity. I know dynos are weather corrected, but this will be my after run. I did a before run about 5 weeks ago. It was a sunny dry day before, a bit warmer. Should I wait for a better day?

Dyno'd for what? a tune or just to see the after results of the modifications? If both are graphed out SAE corrected then it will be fine. Dynos really should only be used as tuning tools and the track is where results are proven, but people get too hung up in numbers.

From what I have seen and heard, the dyno will compensate for weather conditions so it doesnt really matter how the weather is that day.
