Its raining on my new paintjob

So I painted my Jeep today, took all day and the weather forecast said 0% chance of rain. I finished about 3 hours ago and now a random rainstorm just rolled through. I put 3 coats of clear on it and it was definitely dry to the touch as of 30 minutes ago. This is my first time using a paint gun/doing a "real" paint job. I have always half ass rattle canned everything. The paint came out perfect. Is getting wet this soon going to mess up the clear coat??? Anyone out there with painting knowledge????

With a set up time of 3hrs. there shouldn't be any issues with the Rain.
I also Sprayed today. Put Color & Clear on the Wife's car. It threatened Rain,
but it never hit here, but you could see it falling about 3 miles out.

Not bad! Hopefully though that other vehicle in the picture wasn't there when you were spraying paint. Over spray can go a long way.

Thanks guys, despite the weatherman's 0% chance of rain turning into a 4 hour thunderstorm with 40 mph winds lightning/thunder (yeah how can you get it THAT wrong), the paint appears to be completely unaffected. Only time will tell, but as of yet it is not peeling.

Paint drops sitting on wet clear will leave spots. Dry it as soon as you can. With 3 coats of clear, you can probably wet sand and buff it out and it will look fine. You will will be wet sanding and buffing anyway if you want your paint job to look it's best.
