Just a concept I am messing with for a new weather icon in my upcoming Icon set. Any comments, criticism and advice are welcomed and appreciated, especially by fellow icon designers.

It took me a minute to understand what this was, I had to do a double take. Make it more obvious that it is an umbrella, maybe a lighter blue and make the rain more visible.
OK, Thanks. I wanted to change the raindrops, so I will make the umbrella lighter too. Great feedback.
No problem, any way I could talk you into a beta? Haha hit me up on twitter @jsmcge if thats cool with you.
Of course. When I have a decent amount of icons, you'll get a message :D
guess making the umbrella to be convex could be better :)
I like the idea but the user can't immediately see the umbrella. Maybe use different colors. There are these colored umbrellas like this
@Dagnosia Thanks, I have a good idea for a rebound :)
@Mladen Yeah, that would make it more recognizable. I'll try it.
I completely agree with Mladen on this one. Rainbow would be awesome! Great shading, though.
While it's creative to show the top of the umbrella, it might be more clear to show it at an angle, like Backup.app

An update based on all of the great feedback I got from you guys. Still not perfect, and a new icon is being created based of Louis Harboe's suggestion.
Comments, Likes and Criticism welcomed and appreciated. :D
