Timing the Downpour

A rainy plazaHave you ever been caught somewhere by a rain storm and waited in a sheltered spot for the rain to let up a bit before stepping out from your shelter?

With rain intensity ebbing and flowing, it would certainly be nice to be able to predict the rain hyper-accurately both in terms of the timing and the location. Imagine a smart phone that could coach your every step to minimize your rain exposure. Even if that’s too far fetched, a really good prediction of weather on the scale of minutes would be a great help to know whether to just hop up and run for it now, or to hunker down in your shelter another five minutes.
