TULSA, Oklahoma -- If you were one of the lucky ones Sunday, you may have actually seen rain.

The News On 6 SkyCam captured the rare sight Sunday afternoon. The rain didn't last long, but we didn't get any reports of complaints.

News On 6 Meteorologist Dick Faurot says the system that produced the small downpour is moving very slowly.

"That means they will be capable of very localized, brief, and heavy downpours and the potential for damaging down burst winds," he said.
