Sowing just before rain makes the aftercare of seeds (which need to stay moist) easier. Working wet/mucky soil is never good, though, so try to time your sowing when the rain is coming but ground is not sodden (or plan to water thoroughly afterward yourself as the seeds get going). You can sow at any time, no matter what the forecast, so long as you are there to provide the water.
