    If it starts to rain before 7am, it will most likely stop and clear up by 11am.

    As to the WHY you asked:

    This saying has much good truth in it, for if it rains before seven, more than likely it has been raining the greater part of the night and the storm is about over. In the hours between seven and eleven, old Sol gets in his effective heating which begins to dissipate the clouds, and as he rises high in the heavens toward noon his chances of success in breaking up the entire cloud covering are highly favorable.

    Rain before seven, fine before eleven - Four hours of continuous rain occur occasionally in temperate latitudes when a weather front becomes slow moving, perhaps with waves, but periods of rain are usually shorter. Seven and eleven were perhaps chosen because other four hour periods do not scan well.

    Rain before seven, fine before eleven. Air mass thunderstorms tend to break up before the heat of the day. So, if it's raining before seven a.m., it will most likely clear up before eleven.
