    other than falling off the roof, is there any harm in installing shingles during a light intermittent rain? like mold developing later due to trapped moisture? I'm putting shingles on my storage shed.

    Rooffers do it all the time on new construction. Watch out for lightning.

    If you are using organic felt the wrinkles that develops when it gets wet, probably won't disappear when it dries out...and be careful.
