7 Weather and its effects in Harvest Moon: Light of Hope

The weather always had an important role in the Harvest Moon series, as well as in Light of Hope. Most of its effect on crops and animals.

The crops could be missing or dead during extreme weather, while the animals will get sick if you bring them outside the chicken coop or animal barn. For the other effects, I will explain below.

In many Harvest Moon series, you can watch the television forecast to do preventative action. However, because there is no TV in Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, you can ask Tabitha/Gareth to know the weather on the next day.

Unfortunately, it is not effective because we can't possibly check the weather forecast via Tabitha/Gareth every day.

Harvest Moon: Light of Hope: 7 Weather and its effects


1. Sunny and cloudy
This weather is great for you to bring your animals outside the barn. Your crops will grow well. You need this type of weather to trigger the Blue Bird's event.

2. Rain
You no longer need to water your crops during this weather. Make sure you keep your animals inside the barn. Don't bring them outside. The villagers will keep doing activities as usual and all event can still occur during rainy days.

3. Heat Waves
Only occurs in Summer. This weather could make your crops drought. Your animals also could be sick if you bring them outside the barn for too long.

4. Foggy
This weather occurs in Spring and Fall. During this weather, your eyesight will be limited because of the area covered by fog. Some types of crops would disappear or die unexpectedly.

If you are using a Laptop or PC under the minimum requirements, I'm sure it will be a heavy lag when you come out of your house.

I think this is an interesting weather concept but simply interrupt the gameplay.

5. Storm
In the menu "Tips" explain that you can't come out of your house, but actually, you can. However, all the stores will be closed and you can't see the villagers on the map, except the gods.

The storm could reduce your crops HP although not the worst as a blizzard. You must keep your animals inside the barn if you do not want them sick.

6. Snowy
This weather only occurs in Winter. You no longer need watering your crops. You can bring your animals outside the barn as usual. All villagers will keep doing activities as usual and the event can still occur during snowy days.

7. Blizzard
Only occurs in Winter. You can not go outside your house. Your crops will disappear when this weather happens. All the stores will be closed and you can't find the villagers anywhere on the map, except the Gods.

That's 7 Weather and Its Effect in Harvest Moon: Light of Hope that you must know. Hopefully, the weather above does not interrupt your farming activities at all.
