  Rain \Rain\ (r[=a]n), n. [OE. rein, AS. regen; akin to OFries.

     Water falling in drops from the clouds; the descent of water
     from the clouds in drops.
     [1913 Webster]
           Rain is water by the heat of the sun divided into very
           small parts ascending in the air, till, encountering
           the cold, it be condensed into clouds, and descends in

           in very small drops or particles, it is called mist;
           and fog is composed of particles so fine as to be not
           only individually indistinguishable, but to float or be

        Novae-Hollandiae}) of Australia.
     {Rain gauge}, an instrument of various forms for measuring

        given time; a pluviometer; an ombrometer.
     {Rain goose} (Zool.), the red-throated diver, or loon. [Prov.
     {Rain prints} (Geol.), markings on the surfaces of stratified
        rocks, presenting an appearance similar to those made by
        rain on mud and sand, and believed to have been so
