Would the hood of the car still be warm if driving in the rain

I know this may sound like a crazy question but i really need to know if you drive a car for about 30 mins in the rain about 65 degrees out, 6am, when you stop shouldnt the hood still be warm & not cool to touch? Or is it possible that the rain would cool off the hood completely?
Thank you!

It depends, on how much rain fell to dissipate the heat. No way to determine, unless you measured with a rain gauge.

The under hood temp is about 220 degrees & the hood will stay hot for
an hour or two,especially if you put the vehicle in a garage.
