QUESTION OF THE DAY:
How fast does rain fall?
The speed of rain depends on the size of the raindrop. The smallest "drizzle" droplets—with diameters less than .02 inch—fall at 1 to 4 mph. Raindrops with diameters greater than 0.02 inch fall faster—from about 5 to 20 mph; the average fall speed is 14 mph.
