The article analyses the weather and climate specificity of coastal zones and their influence on precipitation amounts and frequency. Coastal zones show some phenomena affecting rainfall, which is not observed anywhere else. It is mainly due to thermal contrast between land and sea and is connected with the Land-Sea Breeze System. Unfortunately, due to many difficulties with measurements in the coastal zone over the marine area, variability of the precipitation in a narrow zone of sea-land has not been thoroughly investigated. However, in this paper several methods to measure precipitation above the sea were presented.
