How to Change Weather in The Sims 4 Seasons

If you want to change weather in The Sims 4, you’ll need to find and purchase Dr. June’s Weather Control Device. It costs 1,500 Simoleons, and it will let you choose between every available weather type no matter the time of year. This is the fastest and most effective way to change the weather in The Sims 4 without having to resort to mods.

The weather control device is a structure that you place near your house, and unfortunately, it has a few kinks. It’s not guaranteed to change the weather perfectly, and Sims with low handiness might have trouble using it all the time. However, with enough upgrades, you’ll be able to command the skies to do your bidding.

In addition, you have some minor control over the weather in the Options menu. You can basically turn off weather effects, and turn of temperature impacts on your sims. That means you won’t have to worry about a blizzard ruining one of your sims’ weddings, without having to drop 1.5k on a fancy new remote.

If you don’t want to deal with Dr. June, the only real option is through mods. With the All Cheats Mod by TwistedMexi, you can cheat directly to change the weather. Obviously, this should be used as a last resort unless you’re more interested in the world of cheating at The Sims 4, since the game’s version of this mod tends to be… Just a touch nicer.
