Abstract: India is an agricultural country, and rainfall is the main source of irrigation for agriculture. Prediction of rainfall is very crucial for farmers to make decisions. In this research paper, the prediction model has been developed through deep learning using historical data of 10 years of rainfall. A deep learning approach used Keras API with an artificial neural network technique to predict the daily rainfall. The prediction model has been assessed by four-loss function, i.e., MSE, MAE, Hinge, and Binary Cross-Entropy. 
Keywords: ANN, deep learning, loss function, rainfall prediction.
