During heavy rain, it’s advisable to avoid using high-intensity discharge (HID) lights. These lights generate a lot of heat and can potentially shatter if exposed to sudden temperature changes, such as those caused by rainwater. Additionally, non-waterproof outdoor lights should not be used as they are not designed to withstand heavy rain and can pose a risk of electrical short circuits or even fires. It’s crucial to ensure your outdoor lighting is suitable for all weather conditions to prevent any potential hazards.
