If the BBC news article effect happens http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-20028490
then the rain in the next few day's 'may' have a red tinge from desert sands in the south east - it does go on to play this down a bit by saying - "It can be reddish, but it is quite rare. It is more likely to be a sandy colour or brown. It's not as spectacular as it sounds."
But if you are shooting showers in the next few day's maybe keep an eye out for this effect.
A good storey for Halloween perhaps.

theres a national geographic programme going about called blood rain and star jelly dont know if anyone has seen it, , has a different twist on this subject, but i think the reality is desert sand, not red blood cells and meteorites, apparently the rain was anaylised and found to contain cells, and the star jelly apparently comes from meteorites, found all over scotland a few years ago, looks like frogs spawn without the dots, i think both are atmospheric effects no mystery involved,
I thought that we'd had enough bloody rain this year?
It usually leaves your car in need of a wash if you forget to put it in the garage ;=))

That reminded me that my mate's nine year old son's phrase for diahorrea 'the brown rain'.
When in the Canaries this year, you could see the dust cloud from the Sahara on the horizon, unfortunately I only had my point and shoot with me.
