Rainfall soothes the atmosphere, and calms storms.

(According to atmospheric scientists at the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in Boulder, Colorado, a substantial portion of the energy that drives wind and air circulation in the atmosphere is dissipated as friction by raindrops falling through the air.   I can’t say I fully understand the math and science behind this, but it will make me moan less when it’s raining.)
