The air temperature needs to be at the freezing point of water. Even if the temperature near the ground is above freezing, it can still snow if the air at higher levels is cold enough and the flakes large enough not to melt completely before getting to our level.
Snow is the the water vapor that freezes in the clouds before it falls.Water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit. So if it is 32 degrees Fahrenheit or colder inside the clouds, it will snow. Air does not hold water very well when the temperature is less than 15 degrees Fahrenheit. So for snow to fall and stay on the ground, the temperature has to be between 15 and the 30s degrees Fahrenheit.
