Question about English (US)

if it's not raining later today, we should go to the park

the word "later" in the sentence makes me feel like this is talking about the future(like in the future, maybe 10 minutes later, 15 minutes later), and I'm just confused that why the writer uses be-ing (if IT'S NOT RAINING...). The structure be-ing is talking about the present, right? do you understand why I'm confused? thanks
