So you can do it very easily.
First Step: Opening the Image
First open the image you want to give effect with photoshop. You can use any kind of picture you like.
- Run the Photoshop application.

Now select the Duplicate Layer then go to Image>Adjustment>Curves or press Ctrl+M.
Adjust the setting to give the image “dark rainy day” appearance.

- First add a new layer. Go to Layer>New>Layer (Shift+Ctrl+N) name it "rain" then click ok.
- Fill the "rain" layer with white. Press Ctrl+Backspace.
- Now go to Filter>Noise>Add Noise and adjust the setting like below.
Amount= 10, Distribution= Gaussian
or as you like.
Head for the Filter>Blur>Motion Blur and change the settings as given below.
Angle= -77 Distance= 15 pixels
or as you like.
- Now you have to adjust the levels of the image. Go to Image>Adjustments>Levels. My preferred settings are given in the image. You can change it as you like best.
Now go to your layers pallet and select "rain" layer and then change the mode to “Screen” and Voila!
You have a rainy image!
