A sun shower is a meteorological phenomenon in which rain falls while the sun is shining. A sun shower is usually the result of accompanying winds associated with a rain storm sometimes miles away, blowing the airborne raindrops into an area where there are no clouds. Sun shower conditions often lead to the appearance of a rainbow, if the sun is at a low enough angle.
