Visualizing rain rate

We often talk about rainfall, it’s amount, intensity and subsequent effects. But it’s hard to communicate how strong the rainfall is using words like “light” or “heavy” rainfall. How heavy is “heavy” really? Of course, saying it’s x millimeters per hour of rainfall doesn’t help, does it? So a couple of my colleagues in Project NOAH (Dr. CP David, BA Racoma and Irene Crisologo) made a simple video that we hope will help people visualize rain rate. Enjoy!
