Spring shows bring May flowers!! Carver Brighton, one of our local experts taught us that rain is simply water falling from clouds in the sky as droplets.

Rain forms when warm, moist air rises and condenses to form a cloud of water vapor. The micro-droplets then collect together to form bigger droplets, which fall to the ground because of gravity.

Fun FactRaindrops are quite tiny, only a hundredth to a tenth of an inch in diameter.
