hot weather watering

I live in the south and we are having some extremely hot weather. To keep our flowers alive i am having to water every day. I hear it's best to water early in the morning. Is this good advice?

A couple reasons exist for watering early in the morning. Generally the wind speed is less in early morning, so less water is lost to evaporation. Also, by watering early in the morning, the plants will dry off during the day, and fewer disease problems should develop.
