Default building paver patio and bad weather...

I just dug out the foundation for a 300 sq ft patio and ready to pour sand and lay the pavers.

I live in an area where it has afternoon t-storms almost every other day (although we had a 3-day stretch of no rain) and I'm afraid to pour the sand since there's no way I can get it done in a day... probably not even in 2 days.

So my question is, is it possible to level the sand and lay the pavers in small sections at a time? I'm sure it would make leveling very difficult but can it be done?
I'm sure I'm not the first patio-installer with weather issues...

Why not, a little water will help to compact the base.
Still afraid, just lay a tarp over the area if your expecting really heavy rain to prevent wash outs.
