heres the script :

while (i<40) {
duplicateMovieClip("rain", i, i);
setProperty(i, _x, random(1000)-100);
setProperty(i, _y, 0);
setProperty(i, _alpha, 500-random(50));
scale = random(100);
setProperty(i, _xscale, scale);
setProperty(i, _yscale, scale);
i = i+1;
}

hmmm... you could enter an if loop.


if (raining) {
while (i<40) {
duplicateMovieClip("rain", i, i);
setProperty(i, _x, random(1000)-100);
setProperty(i, _y, 0);
setProperty(i, _alpha, 500-random(50));
scale = random(100);
setProperty(i, _xscale, scale);
setProperty(i, _yscale, scale);
i = i+1;
}
}

in the first frame where the rain starts you have to set raining to true:

raining = true;

at the frame where you want it to stop you set it to false and the script stops generating rain:

raining = false;

got any other scripts in your rain movieclips?
