When I translate these sentences in my native language I don't feel any difference. Could you tell me these differences if they are?

It rains a lot in winter.


There is a lot of rain in winter.

Do you use both of them?


There is no difference in meaning, and both are idiomatic.

From the perspective of style, which is of course opinion rather than objective, I prefer "It rains," both because it is slightly more concise and also because "there is" as a dummy subject is overused. But this does not affect the answer to your question, which is whether the two forms have any difference in meaning. No, they do not.
