Somehow I am puzzled that this does not have audio, would be really helpful to know the spelling

Is this any precipitation or rain specifically?

I'm curious too as "precipitation" isn't a word used that frequently in English.

I asked my native-speaking vietnamese father-in-law; he said "lượng mưa" sounds strange, but thinks it means more like rainfall or amount of rain in an area. He said normally, people just say "mưa" for rain.
