Weather has been so strange this year, including a late snow, that it's hard to know when to dive into gardening chores. If things have dried out sufficiently where you are, it's probably safe, but it won't hurt to wait a bit more to be on the safe side. You don't want to walk around on soggy lawns, as it compresses the soil, making it difficult for air and water penetration, both essential for a healthy lawn.
