Rain

the occurrence of a natural electrical discharge of very short duration and high voltage between a cloud and the ground or within a cloud, accompanied by a bright flash and typically also thunder.

Other Types of WeatherSnow- atmospheric water vapor frozen into ice crystals and falling in light white flakes or lying on the ground as a white layer.Thunderstorms- a storm with thunder and lightning and typically also heavy rain or hail.Hail- pellets of frozen rain that fall in showers from cumulonimbus clouds.Fog- a thick cloud of tiny water droplets suspended in the atmosphere at or near the earth's surface that obscures or restricts visibility (to a greater extent than mist; strictly, reducing visibility to below 1 km).Dust-fine, dry powder consisting of tiny particles of earth or waste matter lying on the ground or on surfaces or carried in the air.Ice- frozen water, a brittle, transparent crystalline solid.
