Filling above ground pool with rain forecast

I've got everything level, pavers in place, and fas/dpd and liquid salt test on the way. I have a Leslie/Taylor kit and salt strips for the time being to get me by. I want to go ahead and setup and start filling, but we have a good bit of rain in the afternoons. Would the rain cause any lasting problems? It would probably take a few days filling since I only plan to do it after showers and laundry is done for the day.

Rain will just help fill it up! No reason to wait. Just be sure to add 3 ppm FC worth of liquid chlorine each day until it is filled and you are adding all the chemicals based on your testing.
