thank you for answering my previous question. You have made it very clear
Yet I have another question...
what is the difference between "I wish it would rain" and "I wish it was raining"?
Does it first example mean it hasn't rained for a few days or weeks and I really want it to rain? like when there's been a drought?

I wish it would rain- refers to the future
I wish it was raining- refers to now
So, you're right to use the first in a drought.
