To pour or shower down from above, like rain from the clouds.
Precipitation of liquid water drops greater than 0.5 mm in diameter. In contrast to showers, it is steadier and normally falls from stratiform (layer) cloud.
Precipitation, either in the form of drops larger than 0.02 inch (0.5 mm), or smaller drops, which in contrast to drizzle, are widely separated; for automated stations, precipitation that remains in the liquid state upon impact with the ground or other exposed objects.
Falling water droplets greater than 0.5 mm in size.
Precipitation of liquid water that falls from stratiform cloud, with diameter greater than 0.5mm. It is generally steadier than showers. Precipitation (from stratiform cloud) with droplets less than 0.5mm is called drizzle.
Falling water drops with a diameter greater than 0.02 inch.
liquid precipitation in the form of liquid water drops with a diameter of at least 0.5 millimeters (drops of less than 0.5 mm=drizzle).
Precipitation that falls to earth in drops more than 0.5 mm in diameter.
form of precipitation consisting of falling water drops
water falling in drops from vapor condensed in the atmosphere
drops of fresh water that fall as precipitation from clouds
precipitate as rain; "If it rains much more, we can expect some flooding"
water drops large enough to cause splashes and ripples in puddles.
Precipitation in the form of water drops falling from the sky.
a type of precipitation that is in the form of water droplets larger than 0.5mm.
The difference between rain and drizzle is that rain has a diameter greater than 0.5mm.
Precipitation which falls as a liquid, whose drops are larger than those of drizzle.
The days preceding revival are often pictured as dry and parched. God Himself speaks of withholding the rain (Amos 4:7) and sending the drought to a stiff-necked people who have turned away from Him (Hag. 1:11). Thus, expressions suggesting rain are very popular during seasons of revival. Think of the delightful prospect of "Heavenly Showers." Or contrast the concepts of "Mercy Drops" with "Showers of Blessing." What could be more delightful than the outlook of "Rain From Heaven"? Especially meaningful is Joel's term, "The Latter Rain" (Joel 2:23). Having passed through the most wretched plague of locusts accompanied by a terrible drought, the prospect of God Himself advancing the rainy season so that the crops are plentiful enough to make up for the years the locusts have eaten is lovely indeed.
Precipitation in the form of liquid drops the diameter of which must be .5 millimeters or greater. Implies a steady precipitation that might last for several hours.
Good for crops. Why we can't make it so that it only falls on crops, I don't know. Mood ruiner for many people.
Precipitation in the form of liquid drops falling from a cloud.
water falling to Earth in drops that are condensed from moisture in the atmosphere.
Indicates a nearly steady and uniform fall of precipitation over an area for several hours, as opposed to the term "showers" which implies intermittent and scattered rainfall of a more unstable, convective nature.
Liquid water droplets that fall from the atmosphere, having diameters greater than drizzle.
Moisture condensed from atmospheric vapor that falls to earth in drops.
Precipitation, either in the form of drops larger than 0.02" (0.5 mm), or smaller drops, which in contrast to drizzle, are widely separated. The following table shows how rainfall intensity is determined: Rainfall Intensity Rate-of-fall in 6-minutes Rate-of-fall in one hour Visual Estimation Light 0.01" Up to 0.10" From scattered drops that, regardless of duration, do not completely wet an exposed surface up to a condition where individual drops are easily seen. Moderate 0.01" - 0.03" 0.11" - 0.30" Individual drops are not clearly identifiable; spray is observable just above pavements and other hard surfaces. Heavy 0.03" 0.30" Rain seemingly falls in sheets; individual drops are not identifiable; heavy spray to the height of several inches is observed over hard surfaces..
The sky will be overcast and the precipitation continuous, with water droplets greater than 0.5mm in size. Things will get wet very quickly. The rain will interfere with outdoor activities. Puddles will form quickly, water will generally run down expressways, and reduced visibility while driving may be a problem.
Water condensed from atmospheric vapor and falling in drops.
1 a : water falling in drops condensed from vapor in the atmosphere.
precipitation in the form of liquid water drops with diameters greater than 0.5 mm
Liquid precipitation with drops larger than .02 inches in diameter.
Precipitation composed of liquid water drops more than 0.5 mm in diameter, falling in relatively straight, but not necessarily vertical, paths. Compare to drizzle.
Precipitation in the form of liquid water drops that have diameters greater than that of drizzle.
water vapor in the atmosphere that condenses and falls from the sky to earth.
precipitation that falls to the ground as a liquid.
Precipitation of liquid water particles, either in the form of drops of more than 0.5 mm in diameter, or of smaller widely scattered drops.
Long lasting stars from an aerial shell or rocket that fall all the way to the ground.
Liquid precipitation. Quite a bit of the air we breath, especially in Western Washington, consists of water vapor. A gas, water vapor is individual molecules zinging around, bouncing off each other and other air molecules and tiny particles of smoke, dust, etc. If this madhouse of caroming molecules and particles cool down, they slow down. And if they slow down, they are less likely to bounce off one another and more likely to stick to one another. If enough of the water molecules stick together, they will form a droplet big enough to see. If a lot of this happens in a big area, we get a cloud. If a droplet gets so big that it can't float in the air anymore, it will fall as rain.
A tangible dampness that falls on Belgium exclusively during the twelve month long wet season. Belgians actually seem to think that it rains every day, which is not in fact true. Except in November. And July.
Drops of liquid water falling from clouds.
Precipitation in the form of liquid water droplets greater than 0.5 mm. If widely scattered, the drop size may be smaller. It is reported as "R" in an observation and on the METAR. The intensity of rain is based on rate of fall. "Very light" (R--) means that the scattered drops do not completely wet a surface. "Light" (R-) means it is greater than a trace and up to 0.10 inch an hour. "Moderate" (R) means the rate of fall is between 0.11 to 0.30 inch per hour. "Heavy" (R+) means over 0.30 inch per hour.
