The Weather Channel

Weather changes day by day and dependent on the season the player is experiencing. The weather for the next day can be checked by viewing the TV screen and selecting 'Weather Report'.

Weather patterns

Weather patterns in game include:

  • Sunny.png Sun
  • Rain.png Rain (The Rain Totem can increase the chance of rain for the next day)
  • Pollen spring.png Pollen fall.png Pollen (during Spring or Fall)
  • Thunderstorm.png Storm (including Rain)
  • Snow.png Snow (only during Winter)

The weather affects the types of fish that can be caught, as well as villager dialogues and behavior.

During thunder storms there is a possibility that lightning strikes can destroy crops and temporarily change fruit bearing trees to coal trees. Lightning will not strike Chests placed outside[1]. If Lightning Rods are placed anywhere on the farm[2] they have a good chance to intercept lightning strikes, as long as they are not already processing a strike into a Battery Pack.
