Read this short story about the British weather.
I left the house with a brolly in my bag because the weather forecast had predicted light showers and, sure enough, as soon as I got outside I felt drizzle. I put up my brolly and hurried along, but there was a huge gust of wind that blew it inside out. As I struggled to fix the brolly the drizzle started to turn into a shower. I ran under a nearby bus stop to take shelter and the heavens opened, it started pouring down, really bucketing down. My brolly was beyond repair so I threw it in a nearby bin and just sat and watched the downpour. After about five minutes it stopped and the sun came out so I carried on walking, but after about a minute it started spitting again and I had to shelter in a shop. This time it was just a quick shower and when I went back outside it was mild with a warm breeze. However as I continued along the street a car run through a huge puddle in the road and splashed me, I was soaked from head to toe.
