Meterological Question

Out walking my dogs today, two walks back to back because our Aussie Shepherd likes to keep rounding the Tibetan Terriers up instead of letting tham play. I guess they're shaggy like sheep .... but I digress

Both times and for a period of well over two hours, it apperead to be spitting with rain from a completely clear sky, wall to wall, 8/8 blue, not a cloud from horizon to horizon. I thought my imagination was running riot but some of them were quite significant drops leaving clear raindrops on my specs until the easterly wind evaporated them.

Can anyone please explain please?

TIA

I"ll try a totally uninformed guess.
Saharan dust provides a nucleus on which droplets can form quickly so you get a relatively small number of large droplets rather than the large number of small droplets which are visible as a cloud.
Either way larger droplets fall to earth.

Now let"s wait for a proper meteorologist.

I used to be a professional weather guesser and that's as good a theory as any other. Was your car covered in any deposits ????

I was walking through a park in central Sydney one evening and my girlfriend commented it was raining. I didn't notice anything and the full moon was shining. She insisted it was raining so I looked up in the trees, there were plenty of fruit bats. Cue one shrieking girlfriend running back to the hotel for a hot shower.

It's the new ultra-fine chemtrail dispersal. Stays in the air long after the aircraft has passed.

Similar experience in N-W W.A. in the season when the cicadas are screeching from the tree tops - a fine but continuous shower below each tree.

Could be, cars did have fine dust earlier in the week but not since.

Not at all as far as the eye could see. What used to be Watton Airfield is now a pig fanm without any crops nearby.

The neighbors have a lawn sprinkler on that you didn’t notice?

The Aussies (smart dogs) are somehow playing mind games with you?
