Tropical Storm with Thunder, Rain and Rainforest Noises

Tropical Storm

Tropical Storm with Thunder, Rain and Rainforest Noises
from Freesound

A thunderstorm passes over a small lake in the Children's Eternal Rainforest Preserve, Costa Rica. Wonderful deep thunder rumbles and a lot of variety.

A very atmospheric nature sound with rain, deep rumbling thunder and tropical forest sounds.

For the first 10 minutes there is the sound of light rainfall on leaves and wonderfully resonant thunder passing along the lake. The heavy raindrops are mixed with bird calls, cicadas and other passing insects.

This is the slow build-up to the storm which arrives around 10:50 when the rain suddenly increases in intensity and hy 13:30 is falling very hard. Little else can be heard other than the rain and some thunder.

After 20 minutes the storm passes over and the rain eases, the thunder rumbles away into the distance and the forest gradually return to normal.

The steady sound of rain together with the deep rumble of thunder creates an hypnotic effect that can help you relax or sleep more soundly at night. The low base tones of thunder are very effective in blocking out unwanted sounds like noisy neighbours, traffic and even snoring!

Use these rain and thunder nature sounds to lift your mood or help you relax, as an aid to better sleep or block out distracting noise to help you concentrate.
