    It rains vs it's raining

    Dear Teachers
    If it rains tomorrow , we won't go out.
    If it's raining tomorrow , we won't go out.
    How many differences are there ? Which one should I take when I'm talking about tomorrow's weather?

    Re: It rains vs it's raining

    I'd use the second if you want to refer to a specific time- you are planning something at 3pm, say, and if it's raining then, you won't go out.
