If you must water your lawn, do it early in the morning before any moisture is lost to evaporation.  Have a few weeds?  Spot treat them with vinegar.  Not sure if you should rake?  Normal clippings act as a natural fertilizer, let them be.  If you’ve waited too long, rake by hand – it’s excellent exercise.
