Rainfall is the water droplets that fall down onto the ground surface from the sky. The amount of rainfall on the earth surface is measured by an instrument known as rain gauge. The standard unit for measuring rainfall is millimeters.
Rain conditions vary from time to time in a year. In some months of the year, the heavy rains are experienced, while in some other months of the year little rains are experienced. For example, in Tanzania the long rainy season is experienced between March and May while the short rainy season is experienced between September and December. Furthermore, Tanzania experiences hot and dry season between January and March.
Rainfall is very important because it supports the growth of plants. It also adds water to the rivers, lakes and dams. On the other side heavy rainfall can lead to floods, which destroy people's property. Too much rainfall also can lead to the spread of diseases like cholera and malaria.
