There is a tradeoff between mowing wet and allowing it to get too tall as you indicate. If possible avoid mowing when wet. One of the main reasons is that it clogs the mower housing with clippings and bogs down the motor. Mulching mowers are especially prone to this. However if the lawn gets too tall between mowings this is also not good. Mowing tall grass back to a short height again stresses the turf and leaves tall clippings on top which if not removed will shade the underlying turf. So try to mow as often and when a rainy spell occurs get back in to mow as soon as it dries out.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
