* There are many places in real life where it's liable to rain like this (anywhere in the Southeastern U.S. or the center of South America for instance). Cue DramaticThunder and you'd better rush to the nearest porch or building. And, if it's in the tropics, stay there overnight. On the other hand, [[UsefulNotes/TheOtherRainforest The Pacific Northwest]] and UsefulNotes/{{Britain}} are known primarily as places where it rains, but it's usually just [[GrayRainOfDepression a steady drizzle]]. However, both have been noted to seeing several days straight of nothing but a heavy downpour.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheDayAfterTomorrow'': Although avoiding some of these tropes as the storm builds up gradually, as the superstorm intensifies it plays this trope straight as it unleashes an endless torrential downpour flooding portions of New York City, and according to one of the characters the downpour lasts about 3 days. The rain eventually [[SnowedIn turns into snow and buries much of the northern continents]].

* Mostly played straight in ''Series/{{Frasier}}'', which is set in infamously rainy Seattle. The thing is, while Seattle experiences more days with some kind of precipitation than most American cities east of the Rocky Mountains, it averages less total precipitation than most of those same cities - as said precipitation mostly occurs as light drizzle. Downpours and thunderstorms in particular are quite rare. Nevertheless, when the series depicts rain for plot or ambiance purposes, it's shown to rain heavily, with thunder and lightning for good measure.

TruthInTelevision, TruthInTelevision for some regions; in the desert, western U.S. is especially known for violent cloudbursts. In deserts, if it rains at all, you had best ''run'' for high ground, 'cause there is serious danger of because the soils tend to have a hydrophobic crust which promotes flash flooding.

* At the end of ''WebAnimation/TheBackwaterGospel'', when the town [[spoiler:engages in a BattleInTheRain]], it turns into a vicious thunderstorm. Somewhat justified though, in that it does take place in a desert setting.
