Is condensation on leaves and grass a form of rain?

    You’re probably referring to dew, which is droplets of water that are formed on many objects, leaves and grass included, in the morning, particularly in summer. It has to do with the differences in temperature. The dew-forming surface is usually colder than the ground due to being good radiators of heat (as infrared) during the night but not conducting well enough to warm up from the heat stored in the ground. The water comes from moisture in the surrounding air. It’s as much of a rain as when someone walks into a warm room from cold outside and their glasses get steamy – which is just another example of dew formation.
