You mean like a barometer…or actually looking at what is happening outside? That's called research and reading, or someone to teach you. ABle to read what is going on around you, much easier to "predict" what is coming

Use a good weather app on your phone. Not a free one. I use eWeatherHD. I check it often enough when top and doors are at home. Others do have alerts down to zip-code level for rain.
Bottom line though, weather is hard to call where I live (TN Valley) so if my app or WeatherUnderground says 30% chance of T-Storm or greater, I leave the top and doors on or set up the trail cover when I get to work.
Pretty much anyone in the coastal south and Florida can count on pop-up t-storms any given week all summer long unless locked in a drought. That's like the baseline forecast from H-Town all the way around you and back up to DC. :-)
Just another Billet Silver Metallic. It blends.

I use "RainAlert" on my iPhone.... it gives push updates for rain notifications.
You set a radius (I have mine on the lowest setting, 11 miles or 22 miles (can't remember, too lazy to check - sorry)), and you get push alerts when it rains in your radius.
It gives you two precentages: strength (how hard is it raining?) and area (what area of your radius is it raining in?)
No - this doesn't guarantee that you're going to get rain when you get an alert - but it DOES stop you from always having to check the weather. If it's going to rain, you'll get an alert. Sometimes, you'll get an alert and it doesn't rain, but rarely (never?) does it work in the opposite.
At the very minimum, this can alert you to go check your weather app or a radar, etc., to see if your area is going to get hit with rain.
Push alerts > Poll (manually checking on your own) IMHO
