This may sound a really stupid question but, on the rainfall rader on the 5 min one, where it shows the snow, rain and sleet.

how dose the system tell the differnce between the 3? is it due to differnt tempretures or what?

thanks in advance

It uses a variety of different measurements from atmospheric temps to ground temps, dewpoint, wet bulb temps etc. It is only a guide though as local conditions can vary dramatically when it comes to snow.
