Every spring you will hear children chanting that old nursery rhyme, “Rain, rain, go away. Come again another day.”
Have you ever wondered why it rains so much in the spring? There is a definite reason that spring is known as the rainy season in Canada.
Remember elementary school? You studied the water cycle. Water was evaporated and gathered in the clouds until the clouds became too heavy to hold it. Rain, sleet or snow would fall from the clouds and end up on earth again
The basics of how rain is formed are still the same.
The water droplets evaporate and become ice particles that combine together in the clouds. When updrafts in the clouds become strong enough, there is a good chance the precipitation will fall as rain from the clouds.
While it can rain during any season of the year, there is one time of year that seems to offer more rain than any other in Canada & the US.
Spring is the time of year when temperatures in the north are still cold and dry while temperatures from the southern regions are warm and humid. When the hot and cold air masses meet, the combination of temperatures causes the to air rise and it creates a strong cold front, which can often include thunderstorms. These thunderstorms provide rain. They produce enough rain to produce the May flowers from the verse “April showers bring May flowers!”
The spring weather fronts change as the air becomes warmer. As summer approaches, the necessary weather conditions do not exist as frequently and the rainy season turns into an occasional rain storm.
The same effects happen every year. Prepare yourself for the rains of spring by grabbing a good umbrella, boots and rain coat. When the rain hits, you’ll be singing in the rain!
There …doesn’t that make you feel better? Me neither.
But this should…if someone is raining on your receivables and not paying you , we can make it stop.
‘Cause that’s what we do Winter, Summer, Spring or Fall. Rain or Shine
