The pilot stated that after landing, a gust of wind from the left rear lifted the left wing which caused the airplane to veer sharply to the left. He could not regain control in time and airplane exited the runway onto "rain saturated grass" where the nose landing gear dug into the mud, and the airplane nosed over.
