driveway sealing questions

Iím scheduled to have my driveway sealed and cracks filled on Tuesday. Weather is going to be warm the day the driveway is sealed but it is supposed to rain 1/2 inch the next day and turn much colder two days later (high in 60s, low in 40s). Will it be able to cure properly if it rains the next day and will the rain and colder weather so soon after sealing cause any damage or effect the longeavity of the asphalt?

Normally you need 24 hrs to dry [before rain] and 48 hrs before putting it back into use. If I'm not mistaken it can take up to 30 days to cure.

Crack filling should be done first and allowed to cure, then seal coat, I would want a few days of no rain!
