The Weather Forecast system is an important gameplay element in the Persona series.



Persona 4 Edit

It significantly dictates the activities of the protagonist while he stays in Inaba. The player can check the weather for the whole week through the television in the Dojima Residence, the student on the roof of Yasogami High School, and while meeting with the Investigation Team at Junes Department Store. In Persona 4 Golden, after a certain point, during the protagonist's free time you can tap the screen to bring up an overlay that shows the next two days' weather reports.

Weather ConditionsEdit

As mentioned, several options and activities are dictated by the weather.


Music: "Your Affection", sometimes replaced by ambient cicada chirping in summer.

  • Seen after New Year's Day until Valentines Day.
  • Gardening and bug catching are no longer possible, but the player can dig up bugs in the Dojima garden.

Persona 5Edit

The available weather conditions are clear, rain, snow, and cloudy. Weather influences people's mood and subsequently changes the structure of Mementos. Rain also changes the overworld music and makes most Confidants constantly available but completely disabling others.

Besides these, secondary, special weather can occur. They are labeled as "pollen warning", "heat island" and "guerrilla rainstorm".

Certain passive skills only function in certain weather. These include Ambient Aid and Climate Decorum.
