Always Carry An Umbrella
There is no doubt in this. An umbrella is the safest way against the rain, always make sure you have an umbrella with you whenever you are going out. You can purchase one from any store or supermarket closest to your location. As a safety precaution, please get big umbrellas and make sure the umbrella isn’t faulty before purchasing it.
Invest In Rain Boots or Rain Coats

Consider Buying A Scarf
Protect your hair, and head with a scarf during the rainy days. A thick or thin scarf to tie around your neck can keep the flyway’s at bay and protect you against the cold. This will also serve as a head cover for when the drizzle or rain starts.
Layer Your Outfit
The weather can be tricky and unpredictable, so to avoid being caught unawares, it is advised that you layer your outfit in case of a sudden change of weather.

Black outfits are a very great way to keep yourself warm as it is a color that generates and absorbs heat. If you don’t want to be caught off-guard by the rain, Wear black.
