May seem a bit daft of me to ask but was just wondering if it is possible for a pond to freeze over if it is raining
Thanks

Only if the temp is below freezing. The last couple of days have been so mild that my koi are up and feeding.

I assume that if it's cold enough to freeze a pond it's cold enough to freeze the rain.

Ice will form on the top of still water like a pond if the air temperature drops to 0 degrees C. Due to the anomolous expansion of water, as its temperature drops below 4C it will expand as it gets colder. Therefore, due to convection currents the densest water at 4C will sink to the bottom, allowing any fish to survive.
In addition, the ice at 0C will float to the top and insulate the warmer water below from further heat loss.

The water would be constantly moving with the rain hitting it so doubt it'd freeze.
