heavens, it’s raining.

News... Last night it was raining
It was pouring - 10 February

. . . . . . .

The OED word of the day for the weather report is the adverb 'heavens.'

This one is another salute to Dickens, but it's also a keeper for the Puget Sound. Its primary usage is as an intensifier to describe heavy rain, i.e. "raining heavens hard."
