Welcome to English in a Minute, where we teach you all about idioms in American English.

If I told you it was "raining cats and dogs" today, I don't think you would see this little kitten falling frim the sky. But what would you see? Let's watch and find out..

A: It's been raining all day today! The rain is coming down so hard!
B: I konw, It's raining cats and dogs today!

This is a very common expression in American English. When you say that it's "raining cats and dogs" in a conversation, it's another way to say it's "raining very hard" or it's "raining a lot".

You can use this expression anytime and everybody will understand you! So until next time, stay dry!

And that's English in a Minute.
