Baking experts... will it be ok to keep phyllo pastry open overnight?

I want to attempt baklava. I know phyllo pastry can be problematic if it dries out... so is it ok to assemble the whole thing the night before, cover it in clingwrap and keep it in the fridge till the next day where I will then bake it and add the syrup? Also when is the best time to add the syrup to the pastry?... show more I want to attempt baklava.
