t.m.c. My gut feeling is you have not done any harm to your engine. The oil pressure warning system/light is an on or off device. It is not an analog device i.e. it was not designed to start dim and intensify. Most likely the rain was shorting out. The only way to be sure is to test the oil; pressure with an analog gauge or install a VDO gauge in the cockpit. See my web page.
