What do you call the weather when even though it's raining the sun is out.
What are other ways to describe rain provoke level: pouring, drizzling..what else
When it's barely coming down, it's sprinking.
Then I'd say a drizzle.
Then maybe a steady rain.
Pouring is the heaviest - but that has idioms: It's coming down in buckets, it's raining cats and dogs.
You can have a brief "shower" but that describes duration, not intensity.
Yes, typo. Sorry. SprinkLing.
sunshower: Information from Answers.com
A sunshower is an unusual meteorological phenomenon in which rain falls while the sun is shining . These conditions often lead to the appearance of a rainbow, if the sun is at a low enough angle . The term "sunshower" is used in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and parts of Britain, but is rarely found in dictionaries . Additionally, the phenomenon has a wide range of sometimes remarkably similar folkloric names in cultures around the world . A common theme is that of trickster animals, or the devil, getting married, although many variations of parts of this theme exist .
P.S: A useless remark. In some regions of Brazil we say "the wedding fox". My parents would say that.
