Well it was heavy raining here recently. So heavy, that there are floods in Central Europe now. I was too busy lately to go out and record rain, but today I managed to record it from different perspective.
I attached contact mic to the window and recorded some nice thunders rumble:

There were big raindrops, but from this perspective it sounds huge.
And here is a mix of both tracks:
And a close thunder strike, both tracks mixed (thank you Sound Devices for pre roll record):
