    has been raind vs. has been rainnig

    God Bless!

    It has rained since this morning.
    It has been raining since this morning.

    Do you see any difference in meaning?
    I read somewhere (have been + ing) means it will probably continue raining in the future.
    Thanks!

    Exclamation Re: has been raind vs. has been rainnig

    The difference between present perfect to express an amount of work finished up to the present moment (I've read three books )and the present perfect continuous to express the duration of the current activity (She's been reading for three hours).

    So "It has rained since this morning." means the rain has stopped at the time of speaking.

    Please consider "since this morning".
    It shows that it is still raining!

    It has been raining since this morning. It started raining this morning and it is still raining now.
    It has rained since this morning. It didn't rain this morning, but since then it has rained, it may or may not be raining now.
