-It rained the instant she arrived home.

-As soon as she arrived home it started to rain.

-The moment she got home it started raining.

-As soon as she got home, it started to rain.

-She had no sooner left/came the house than it began to rain.

-It started raining as soon she arrive home.

-She had just time to open her house´s door before the rain started.

-The rain came just before/after Fran had reached home.

-She just got home, when the rain began.
