Report: Sudden cloudburst as McCain casket carried into U.S. Capitol building
A hard rain fell. CNN screen cap

[Ed. – This is CNN’s report.  They’ve emphasized it at least three separate times today (Friday).  In one report, they even included a shot of a radar map showing the heavy rain over the District.]

On Friday, McCain came home to the Senate one last time, becoming only the 31st person to lie in state in the US Capitol, a rare honor reserved for government officials and military officers. While minutes before the sun had shone over the dome, as McCain, carried by an honor guard, ascended the steps, the clouds opened and rain poured down.
Shortly before 11 a.m., McCain’s body entered the Capitol Rotunda. They set the casket atop President Abraham Lincoln’s catafalque, a wooden structure that has been used for decades for such services. McCain’s former colleagues looked on.
