Please tell me the function of the phrase "with rain" in this sentence:

The weather turned out very squally, with rain.

    Does the prepositional phrase "with rain" amplify the predicate rather than the subject of the sentence?

    I'm not sure.:oops:

    I see the prepositional phrase "with rain" as a final free modifier. I think it modifies the whole of the clause, but please wait for other opinions.
