Hello all, basic stupid question probably. Pardon me. Currently I look at the GFS, NAM, sometimes GEM, and Euro, prehaps HRW. I get the models here The Euro is from Wunderground where it is free and basic.

The question is where do I find what the precip type will be? My brother asked a good question which was "Why does it snow sometimes when it is 36 and rain sometimes when it is 33? I answered it has to do with the temperatures at different layers of the atmosphere, from basic reading I think these layers are 850mb and 500??? I may be wrong.

In a nutshell is there a basic guide that says. This MB = this height and also a guide that translates the numbers to precip type? My guess is this answer is on the site somewhere, pardon me for not finding it if it was. Thanks for any help.
