Hi, I've just read on BBC that snow falls when it's between 0 - 2 degrees.

Why does rain fall between those temperatures then? I live on the coast, so that is probably something to do with it, but it rained yesterday and Tuesday and the temperature hovered between one and three degrees.

Thanks.

It will also depend on the temperature of layers higher up.
In winter a lot of precipitation will start as snow high in the clouds.
It's not unusual for surface temperatures to be lower than higher in the atmosphere, in extreme cases this can lead to freezing rain which can be very serious if it accumulates for long.
