I began receiving a weekly snow forecast for Big Sky, MN from j2ski. On the 3 day forecast it says light snow at altitude and light rain below. Yet the temperature range says minimum of 0 degrees F and maximum of 14 degrees. It does not seem like there should be any rain. Does this make sense?

No!

From a quick look, that does appear to be way too cold to rain so looks like a data error in the forecast feed we get. We'll have a look but it does happen occasionally and will usually correct on the next update.

Perhaps it's a sign of global warming, and it will now rain at lower temps
