Please tell me the difference, even if a little, between the following sentences. I have looked at previous threads on this issue, but they don't address all the three prepositions at once. So please help me.

  1. It has rained in the last five days.

  2. It has rained over the last five days.

  3. It has rained during the last five days.

  • Add a 4th. "It has rained the last five days".
