Is 'ultra localized rain' a genuine phenomenon or a hoax?


Recommended Posts

These four videos purport to show rain falling on one very specific spot (e.g. just a few metres wide). The location does not move during the videos.

Some of the news articles describe it as a rare phenomena called "ultra localized rain".

What's weird is the rain never moves laterally, which should be expected as clouds move with the wind. Is this a genuine phenomenon, or a hoax?

This alone makes me suspect a hoax.

I have seen rain falling in my front yard, while none was falling in my back yard, but this didn't last long at all as the rain line moved with the wind, as you rightly point out.

People these days seem eager to believe almost anything they see on a YouTube video, no matter how ridiculous or illogical it may be.

A good B2B salesperson has to know their market, their competitors, and who their ideal customers are. They also need know how their product or service fits into the marketplace and what their value proposition will be https://folderly.com/blog/email-marketing/how-will-the-field-of-email-marketing-personalization-change-in-2022.
