I inadvertently left pre-sprouted seed potatoes on my balcony and they suffered a severe shower today. I didn't plan to plant them before 4 days at the very least.

Is there an hurry to plant them now that they are wet ?

They are currently laying spread out in a wood crate.

If there is plenty of air circulation so they dried fairly quickly, I don't think there is anything to worry about.

You might want to move the potatoes out of the crate and keep them "upside down" somewhere for a few hours, to make sure both the potatoes and the bottom of the crate get properly dry.
