I build decks for a living so I am more familiar with treated wood than one needs to be, it will dry regardless of whether it gets wet or not. There is no need to keep it dry. The boards are able to get air movement on all sides now, you will be surprised how fast they dry out.
I have materials delivered on Fridays, by the time I start the deck on Monday the boards that are on the outside of the lumber pile are relatively dry. The ones in the middle are still saturated and much heavier.
