    Any and everything that falls from the sky for long enough will experience terminal velocity. This depends on the shape, size and weight of the object that is falling. For example, humans terminal velocity is around 120-150 miles per hour. Raindrops fall at a much slower pace than us. According to a typical raindrop (with a .08 inch diameter) will fall at about 14 miles per hour. Large raindrops (0.2 inches in diameter) can fall at speeds up to 20 mph, while a small cloud droplet (0.0008 inches) could be as slow as .02 mph.
