Rain Rain Go Away Come Again on a Work Day?

During the scorching summer months an afternoon rainstorm can be a common and refreshing sight. But for residents in the southeastern United States, a recent NASA study has found, these storms are more intense during the work week than on the weekends. This trend, scientists belive, is driven by pollution that also increases during the work week, from sources like businesses, traffic and factories.
