The rain can be read two ways:1) as a purgation (outpour/downpour) of emotion: this is what Gatsby feels and expects Daisy to feel, but the date/reunion is awkward, a bit anticlimactic.2) as a link and a way back to the past. Fitzgerald says in chapter 9:“tomorrow we will run faster, stretch our arms out father… so we beat on, boats against the current, born back ceaselessly into the past.”Chapter 5 is the turning point / fulcrum of the novel: it’s in the middle for a reason.  In chapter 5, Gatsby wants to get in his little boat and travel back on the sea of history into the past.
