Wierd noise in the rain?

When its raining and im going down the road, there is a strange noise right behind both front doors like in the crack where the front door shuts or either at the front of the back doors where the hinges are.. I cant pin point it exactly but its in that area.. It is a noise almost like small hail hitting my truck

2010 F250 Lariat FX4 w/Sync.. Everything but nav and sunroof.. Little bit of IDP to help it out

May sound dumb but it's the rain coming off of the mirrors and hitting the window. If I keep my mirrors extended out it happens. If I pull them in to normal length it stops.

noticed this as well with my mirrors at the normal distance. next time it rains i'm going to try folding them in to see if its an aerodynamics thing.

Ya those big mirrors are nice but they sure like to deflect bug/bees/dirt in the window!!

I tried my windows extended and normal yesterday and it was still the same.. Its not that bad, i just turn the radio up but its aggrevating everytime someone rides with you in the rain and they ask what it is so you have to explain its the rain but i dont know why it does it

My 2010 does this but my 06 never did. In the 08+ trucks they removed the weather stripping around the back window and I believe the noise comes from the rain running down that channel.
