    Red face Will it rain today?

    What's the difference between 'Will it rain today?' and 'Would it rain today?'?

    Re: Will it rain today?

    The most natural questions are "Is it going to rain today?" and "Is it forecast to rain today?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    And the answer, here in southwest Ohio, is "it sure is." The much-weakened remnants of Hurricane Harvey are brushing our area now and will remain here through tomorrow. All we're seeing from this dying storm is some constant light rain.
