Rain, Cold Weather Cancels Downtown Murrieta Project

Hail fell in parts of Murrieta on Friday.

A cold front that brought rain and hail to Murrieta Friday is expected to stick around through Saturday.

Hail pounded the City around 11 a.m. Friday, causing confusion for some motorists. The hail quickly turned to a downpour.

There was a 40 percent chance of rain Friday night, and a 20 percent chance on Saturday, which prompted Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley to cancel its "A Brush With Kindness" project scheduled for Saturday. The project was a collaboration with the Murrieta stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints' "Mormons Helping Hands." Together, the group of about 400 volunteers planned to do minor repairs such as painting and yard work on 20 homes in Historic Downtown Murrieta.

The event has been rescheduled for April 30, said Kristi Reedy, a spokeswoman for Temecula-based Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley.

Friday's low temperature was forecast at 39 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. Saturday's high was expected to be 57; it will likely remain cloudy all day. Sunday should be partly cloudy with a high of 65, according to the weather service.
