How damp can the hood be for stowage?

This morning in the UK it was lovely and sunny, and i expected to be able to enjoy a drive to work with the hood down. However on leaving the house and getting to the car i realised it must have been quite damp (though hadn't rained) overnight.

Is it ok to put the hood down and stow it when its damp, or should it be left to fully dry first?

Thanks in advance

you can put it down wet, but don't leave it that way for days (it might mildew).

Put it down wet, drive to work, put it back up to dry. No problem.
