rainstorms everywhere [?]


Explanation:
An aguacero is not just rain, it's a rainstorm, thunderstorm, raining cats & dogs, etc.
"Hay aguaceros por todas partes" sounds a little unusual, as though someone is looking at a weather map of a large region & noting that there are rainstorms all over the place.
Context should help your final choice.

There are leaks all over the place..


Explanation:
...or similar. Although the first meaning is as given by the other contributors (i.e. aguaceros = showers) your context may be leaks in a roof say. Just an alternative suggestion. As a more literal rendering I would say 'It's raining all over'. It's neutral, doesn't imply heavy rain...

Aguaceros = downpours, it's a bit stronger than 'showers' or 'rain'


Explanation:
'Hay aguaceros por todas partes.' is an odd sentence construction, but to keep the same tone, I would suggest "There are downpours everywhere." OR "There are heavy showers everywhere."

There are heavy downpours everywhere.


Explanation:
There are heavy downpours everywhere

[by pberrymn] 3:07pm


I have to agree with pberrymn with regard to the exact literal meaning although aguacero in Costa Rica can mean a very heavy drenching, sloshing, inundating, gushing, soaking, overflowing, interminable tropical downpour not necessarily accompanied by a thunderstorm

aguaceros = heavy rain


Explanation:
"Aguaceros" means heavy rain. It is NOT a storm. Storms are usually accompanied by either thunder or wind. I would translate it...

...there is heavy rain everywhere.

Hope this helps! Good Luck!
