Instant Rain, Just Add Thunder

A thunder clap cueing an instant and intense downpour of rain.

Bob's car has broken down, far from civilisation, and he is forced to walk to the nearest phone. As he takes his first steps, a thunderclap sounds over-head and it begins pouring with rain.

Often used as comedy, the instant rainstorm, almost always preceded by a thunder-clap, relies on Willing Suspension of Disbelief. In reality, though thunder may coincidentally cue a rain storm, lightning (and thunder) are unrelated to the occurence of rain, and will more likely sound during a large storm.
