A spurious Latin-Greek formation coined by the Greekless which attempts to express love for rain but in fact manages to express both pretentiousness and ignorance, the proper Greek formation being "ombrophile,' with ὄμβρος meaning long rain.

(Note: A psekaphile would be one who likes drizzling rain, and an hyetophile one who likes the rain in general.)
Pretentious Jerk: "He's a real pluviophile. He would be happy in Vancouver."

Jerk: "Why, you're no Classicist! It's ombrophile! Go study Greek!"

People that love rain are called pluviophiles. The word pluviophile comes from the Latin word “pluvial,” which means rain, and “phile,” which denotes a thing or a person. Therefore, a pluviophile is a lover of rain, or someone that finds joy and peace of mind during the rainy days.
Why are you going outside on such a heavy rain? What are you; a Pluviophile?

My aunt saw that it was raining and took off all of her clothes and went running outside. That's when I started thinking, ''My aunt might be a pluviophile.''
