Arabia Weather - We often hear the terms rain showers and rain, as clouds and clouds carry with them different forms of precipitation. Rain, rain showers, snow showers, and hail showers, which may be accompanied by thunderstorms, have several types and forms depending on the condition and the weather turbulence present in the place of their origin.
In fact, yes, there is a big difference between them, in terms of the weather condition that causes each of them, the type of clouds that lead to these precipitations, the time period of the precipitations, the geographical area they cover, the intensity of the precipitations, the diameter of the raindrop, and the speed at which raindrops from the clouds reach the surface of the Earth.
Rain is usually accompanied by air depressions accompanied by air fronts of stratiform clouds that extend horizontally. It usually occurs for a longer period of time than rain showers and covers large areas with approximately the same intensity, meaning there is uniformity in precipitation. The diameter of rain water drops is smaller than rain showers and reaches The cloud reaches the Earth's surface at a slower speed than showers.
As for rain showers, they occur mainly in cases of atmospheric instability, from cumulus clouds with vertical extension. They usually occur for a specific period of time and over smaller geographical areas, with a change in the intensity of the precipitation from one place to another and from time to time. Also, the diameter of the rain water drops is larger and reaches... From the cloud to the surface of the Earth at a higher speed.
