Early morning and/or later in the evening is best.

If you water later in the evening you don't lose much to evaporation but you do run the risk of encouraging fungal diseases, especially if the weather is warm and/or there is no wind. Also the plants can't actually do much with the water, other than rehydrate, and there is time for the water to migrate out of the root zone.

Better to water in the morning, less disease and greater utility to the plant, which then has the whole day to transpire/photosynthesise.
