• Conundrum – When Does A Shower Become Rain?

Yesterday at 06.30, BBC Radio’s weather forecasters predicted “showers in the West”.  It then proceeded to rain solidly – and heavily – for three hours.

So when does a shower become rain?

I’d like to think that there’s Zen-like enlightenment to be found in that elusive moment of transition.

    A shower is precipitation (that wet stuff) over a small area, but can last upto an hour. Rain is precipitation over a large area say Cornwall or Devon, normally last quite a while .
