Why raindrops fall at an angle?

Why are rain drops slanting?

 

Rain on street at windy night


Raindrops fall vertically down toward the earth. The atmospheric air always has a motion. A mild breeze to a heavy blowing wind. This air movement makes the vertically falling raindrops move horizontally resulting in an inclined path downwards. It is an optical illusion that makes a beholder feel like raindrops are falling down as oblique lines. On a calm day, raindrops fall straight downward vertically almost near 90 degrees.
