Rain is falling heavily
You may hear or read this, as in "Rain is falling heavily in upland areas, whereas on the plains...."
However, 'heavily' is an adverb qualifying 'falling' - it could suggest (to take it to the extreme) that just a few drops of rain might have fallen...but boy, did they fall with a heavy thump!
What is really meant is that "Heavy(=dense) rain is falling in upland areas..."
