    Both are fine. Now, if you are asking because someone marked one of these sentences as wrong, you need to tell us, and you need to provide the context. 1. Was anything said before or after that sentence? 2. Had the rain just ended or was it being forecast again. 3. Was it still raining when the speaker uttered their phrase? 4. Is this taken from a multiple choice test? Is the option "both" also included? – Mari-Lou A Dec 25 '18 at 10:44
  • I was given a set of sentences and they were all independent and I wondered if these two sentences will mean the same or not. – Deepanshu Jain Dec 26 '18 at 13:40
