What to wear when its about to pour with rain!

I am shortly to hit Sydney City for some outdoor drinks at the Opera Bar which is an outdoor bar at the Sydney Opera house that overlooks the famous coat hangar bridge. The weather today has been cloudy but stifling humid and hot. As per the radar image it looks like I am out of luck as Sydney is about to be hit by rain from the West. Red spots are really bad.

I know many of you will say take a rain coat or an umbrella and I can figure that myself but what does one wear on a Saturday night when the weather threatens. It may not even pour or it may stop before I get there if it’s a tropical storm I don't know. The responses may not be of use to me now however may they inform and enlighten those who one day may face the same plight as I do now.

I was going to wear my C&J Lowndes but that looks like its not going to happen.

Below is an image from the Sydney Morning Herald of what my night is theoretically meant to look like.

This is what it looks like as its passing over my head heading east for the CBD.
