How To Change Weather

Advance The Time By Having A Bonfire Or Staying At An Inn

In order to change the weather, you need to advance the time within the game. You can pass the time by enjoying a bonfire or staying at an inn, which will allow you to change the weather. However, please note that there is a chance the weather may not change even after advancing time, as it could remain the same.

Wait Until The Weather Changes

Game Time3 Hours
Real Time 3 Minutes

The weather changes every 3 hours in-game, and every 3 minutes in real time. If you can't pass the time with activities like a bonfire, try waiting for a few minutes. In the case of a thunderstorm, there is a risk of being struck by lightning if you are in an open area so it is recommended to wait in a safe place with a roof.

Check The Weather Forecast

The weather forecast is displayed next to the mini-map in the bottom right corner of the screen. It provides real-time information about the weather for the next hour, so wait until the desired weather arrives.
