atmospheric precipitation in the form of very fine drops with diameters of less than 0.5 mm. Drizzle usually falls from stratus and stratocumulus clouds. The drops fall so slowly that they seem to be suspended in the air. The intensity of precipitation produced by drizzle is low: 0.05–0.25 mm per hr.
