This mod is an attempt to make rain more visually convincing. It reduces the effect of raindrops falling together in clumps. (It looks a bit better in motion than in the screenshots.) I also attempted to reduce the effect of the smoke/fog clouds rolling around without eliminating it entirely.
UPDATE: The mod appears to work the same in NEXT without any further modifications. Unless I get reports of any problems, I'm declaring it compatible.
Unzip, stick it in MODS folder (that's what she said).
1.1 - Reduced the number of particles in an effort to lessen the FPS impact.
