    • It’s because for southern states there’s more of a spike in humidity. What you smell is the fresh moisture in your nose. Northern states are more consistently humid so there’s not much of a difference to notice. Before you argue, fucking look it up. Northern states ARE more humid. generally

    • What you smell from rain is the O3 molecule called Ozone. Rain helps push it down from the atmosphere where we can smell it easier. The name actually comes from the Greek word "ozein" meaning smell.

    • Ozone. It's fucking ozone. A thunderstorm's electric charge and splits atmospheric nitrogen and oxygen molecules into separate atoms. Some of these recombine into nitric oxide, and this in turn reacts with other atmospheric chemicals, occasionally producing O3
