It’s bucketing down!

Bucketing down expression meaning

This is one handy phrase to know if you’re heading for the UK, if you want to put into words this nature phenomenon.

This, as I’m pretty sure you’ve guessed, means pretty heavy rain, a shower, if you like.

Armed with this new expression you could say something like:

– No, I’m not going to the gym, it’s bucketing down out there!

– Did you cycle all the way to work? It was bucketing down!

  1. What about “raining cats and dogs”? It is not quite as posh, I suppose?
