The lightest jackets are under 4 ounces. Just remember the lighest stuff usually rips in a crash. The 8oz jackets are a little tougher. Also get a cycling vest with mesh back, you'll use them layered together and make adjusting to the weather and your effort level easy.

North Face VERTO is an excellent “just in case” summertime downpour jacket, put it in your bag(or jersey pocket) and forget about it, packs down so fricken small and weighs nothing! The hood is a bit tight over helmet, but it’s thin so under works, also the sleeves have a lot of material that flap around in wind. This is not really my go to jacket on wet rainy day rides for long periods of time, for me it’s a “emergency” jacket for rain showers or higher elevation chill.

Off topic a bit.. but for true emergencies I often do carry a large trash bag. To be worn poncho style. ;)
