Will rain ruin the base for retaining wall?

Hello all,

I am doing a small 16 inch high by 50 feet long retaining wall using 25lb wall blocks. I have dug and compacted the trench and now waiting for the 1/4 crusher base material to arrive. Should I wait until the weather forecast shows sunny weather or will it be OK if the base material gets wet due to rain?

The rain shouldn't matter.
