How long to wait for spring dethatch in MN

It's a late spring here in MN. My snow has just melted away. Much of the grass is still dormant, with spots of green here and there.

How long should I wait to do a heavy dethatch? I'll be dethatching with a front mounted rotary broom.

Why are you dethatching?
Dethatching disturbs the soil so I think you would be better off doing it in the fall instead of spring if you even have to do it at all as I wouldn't recommend doing it just to do it.
