    should it

    What is the difference between the following two sentences??

    1- "Should it rain today, the people would be saved."
    2-"If it rains today, the people will be saved."
    On what occasions can "should" be used in conditional sentences?

    There is no difference in meaning between the two. The first one is unlikely in modern English.
