When is it safe to graze?

I'm in NE Kansas and we have gotten a lot of rain. The pastures look great and I'd say the grass is probably 2-3 inches tall. Right now I'm struggling with whether or not I want to turn Duke out. He is the get fat on air type, and genetically predisposed to metabolic issues. So.. When is it safe to turn him out to graze?

I've read several different things on this topic. Grazing in the evening rather than in the early part of the day. Not grazing after rain, not grazing until the grass is so tall. I just have no idea about this, so any advice?
