I would just get the cabinets up somewhere safe for now, dry them and wait until you have the time and means to finishing them. Cold damp weather really isn't the best time to finish cabinets. The cabinets will have water spots. When it's time to deal with the water spot, if the cabinets are going to be stained light in color or natural the first thing you're going to have to do is bleach the water stains. You could use household bleach but it would be more effective to use two part wood bleach and bleach the stain areas. Then the entire surface is going to have to be sanded to at least 180 grit sandpaper. Just the cabinets sitting in storage even if they had not gotten wet have gotten dirty and the humidity has raised the grain so it wouldn't stain evenly. The toespace on the front could probably be covered with 1/4" ash plywood once the cabinets are installed so you could skip that part if you wish. It's mainly the exposed ends you need to worry about. After the cabinets are sanded, I would use a pigmented oil stain like Sherwin Williams Wood Classics stain and then use a coat or two sanding sealer sanding it between coats with 220x stearated sandpaper and then put two coats of Sherwin Williams interior oil based polyurethane in a satin or semi-gloss sheen.
