Several Inland Empire communities experienced rainfall on Thursday, offering some relief from the dry conditions that have led to recent wildfires in the area this summer.

A small storm cell moved through Perris and dampened the roads around 4 p.m. while larger thunderheads produced rain in Anza, Barstow and Fort Irwin.

Earlier Thursday, heavier rainfall forced road closures in Idyllwild and raised concerns about mudslides on the heels of the Cranston Fire from last month.
