Why do rainy scenes in Thelma & Louise movie happen in sunny weather? I know sometimes when it rains it's possible to see the sun in sky, but this happens in several scenes even in different cities. Is it a gaffe or has it been deliberately made like that?

Maybe there's a small dark rainy cloud over them :). – Advicer Apr 6 '12 at 18:18

I wasn't able to find much, but what I could find leads me to believe that it was just Mother Nature's unwillingness to cooperate. It happens sometimes, as I'm sure you've seen in other films. It's possible it could have some deeper meaning, but I didn't see any production notes anywhere alluding to it. The two primary shooting locations are listed as Bakersfield, CA and Moab, UT, so it's likely it was just unlucky weather.
