I water lawn at 6am with a sprinkler for 30 min. In hot weather,can I water again in mid-afternoon to cool down grass?

Watering won?t actually cool the grass to any great degree. As long as it is well hydrated in the morning it should be able to tolerate the hot sunshine. It has a natural defense system in that the roots will conserve moisture by making the grass blades limp. It will perk up again when the sun sets. Best wishes with your lawn.
