- A slang for showers and thunderstorms that form on a scattered basis with little or no apparent organization, usually during the afternoon in response to diurnal heating. Individual thunderstorms are typical and are sometimes referred to as air-mass thunderstorms. They are small, short-lived, and very rarely severe, and they almost always dissipate near or just after sunset.
