I see there other examples online so it must be real. Anyone know the name of the phenomena?

"Ultra-localized rain" seems to be the term.

That's so ironic.  It's their wedding day.

And God said, let there be light, and there was light. And God saw the li- holy sh*t, that car is a mess.  God saw the car and was grossed out and washed it.

It happens. I've been to baseball parks and only one section gets rain while the rest of the sections laugh at them.

Rob McKenna?

"And as he drove on, the rainclouds dragged down the sky after him, for, though he did not know it, Rob McKenna was a Rain God. All he knew was that his working days were miserable and he had a succession of lousy holidays. All the clouds knew was that they loved him and wanted to be near him, to cherish him, and to water him."

That fascinating.  I've flown around thunderstorm cells that go from 5,000' to more than 30,000' in the Midwest and they are no more than 1/2 mile in diameter.  Water was just pouring out of the bottom and the upper portion of the cumulonimbus cell looked like a chimney.  (It's a summertime phenomenon.)

But nothing this narrow.

I'm guessing maybe it isn't rain and instead just high humidity and fog particles following a ground path to an electric vehicle from the sky. Personally, I would not unplug that vehicle until it went away.

The car that left the windows open.
 
2022-08-11 10:28:27 PM  
Personally I think it's just water coming off of a building.

I have nothing against farkers being assholes. Ask any farker if they think of themselves as being an asshole and they will proudly fess up.

I have been in a car parked on the street that was getting rained on but the sidewalk wasn't.

Southern AZ is a lot like this. You can see thunderstorms dump in just a tiny patch that are so dense they're visible from miles away. It's not unusual to watch people being dumped on* from half a block away while baked in sunshine.

*And not the homeless

I've seen something similar.  It was pretty wild.  Sitting in traffic and a storm cell just starts pouring, on the cars in front of me.  Not a drop on my car.  The rain shifted to the right to attack just this one building.

The sun never stopped shining.

It's not the weirdest thing I've seen weather-wise, but the border between rain and no rain was six feet.
 
2022-08-12 1:54:52 AM  
When I was a child, we came out of a store, and though it was pouring on our side of the street, across the street, it was bone dry. Rain has to end somewhere.

In Australia there is a saying about "rain on the rock" - where Uluru has rain but no where else near it does.  All because of the big rock forcing air upwards.  My mate and I still tell the story of walking around it one sunny day and I said "put your arms out" and we did, the arm close to Uluru was getting wet, but the other wasn't, we were exactly on the edge of a light sun shower.  T'was a perfect moment.

This pic seems a bit more ominous:

CSB:

I was taking an extended 'shroom nap on a beach, near a great gyre of air that forms near the intersection of FL and GA coastline...  The same little squall (not as little as the twit one) went 'round and 'round raining on me intermittently every ten or fifteen minutes just as I was getting hot in the sun.  Bracing!

Uluru's got a lot of reasons to be less than cheerful, so fair enough
