The top radical is 'rain' (雨), meaning 'storm'. Right radical is a Non-General Use character that originally meant 'clam/cutting tool', which acts phonetically to express 'shake/tremble'. This character originally indicated a violent storm that caused things to shake and tremble. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Rain makes clam shake and tremble.'
