With that short of half life, I would say It’s just normal radon fallout. Or radon decay products so to speak.
The prevailing wind was probably bringing high radon content air from north west of you. When it hit the precipitation, it scrubbed the radon decay products out of the air, and deposited them in the precipitation.
Some of the highest radon levels in the nation are to the north west of you so the cold air coming down and hitting the warm air is most likely bringing those natural decay products with them.
In most of the country you will get a radon induced radiation spike when it rains. It caused a lot of false alarms in the military in the early years of the nuclear industry until they figured out what was causing it, and finally figured out it was caused by natural processes that have been going on since before humans existed.

I live in Ward, Ar just on the Lonoke/ White county line. The storm that brought the precipitation came up from the southwest. It followed I-30 up from texas.

Wasn't there something not to long ago about Birds dying in Arkansas? Or was that debunked by chemtrails? correct me if i'm wrong.. This seems to play a corresponding role.
Last January,a chill was sent up my spine on news that there had been a massive bird die off in Beebe,Arkansas. Could this be the beginning of the end of the world? That was my thinking at the time. I searched frantically for an answer for a month. Then,I came across ATS. I immediately signed up,logged on,and was swept away with all the info here. My original reason for my search for the truth was quickly directed to the many things posted here,and so,I forgot about it. So,now,I feel I have come full circle,and I want to further research the origins of the "light bulb" going off in my head.

Some say it is the sun but i do have my doubts, I leave it up to you to decide, here is the link: www.youtube.com...

When I was a kid, a truism sort of like not eating yellow snow was that you never ate or made snow ice cream out of the first few inches of snowfall, because the first few inches of snow was likely to be full of airborne radionucleides.
Grant you, my childhood was a bit atypical so this may not match the sorts of things your parents warned you about, but it's true, the first few inches of snow are often full of whatever's floating around, after that it's safe to eat.
