There will come a time in Minecraft where you will find yourself unsatisfied with your current state of affairs. Sometimes you’ll wish that your setting was livened up a bit, with a bit more diverse weather beyond witnessing the sun and moon rise respectively. Perhaps you are looking to see a bit of snow, but no matter how long you wait, it simply will not come down like you are hoping and expecting it to. In this article, we shall discuss the simple method of drawing out snow for your personal pleasure.
In a Nutshell:
To make it snow in Minecraft, you need to note that it cannot just snow anywhere and therefore move to any snow or ice biome. Once you are in a snow biome all that is left is putting in the command. A console command is indeed the only way to manually activate snowy weather into your game besides just waiting for it to come naturally.
Before you can even think of making it snow in your area, you need to keep in mind that it cannot just snow anywhere. You will need to first be in the correct biome order to accomplish this. Any ice or snow biome will do, anything else will cause it to just rain instead of snow.
Once you are in a snow biome all that is left is putting in the command. A console command is indeed the only way to manually activate snowy weather into your game besides just waiting for it to come naturally, or rather hoping it will. The console command to do so is as follows:
Command: /weather rain
Provided you are in your snow biome, snow should almost immediately begin to fall down from the sky, filling your screen with light white flaky particles that will dance fall on your screen.
It is a beautiful site for sure, but perhaps you are having second thoughts. Maybe after all a while you eventually get sick and tired of witnessing the sight of snow filling your screen which only causes irritation to your sense of vision. To fix this problem you can revert the weather back to its original state by entering another command that can be seen below:
Command: /weather clear
With this command, you will not only make it stop snowing but remove any type of weather that covers or changes the sky from its default setting.
This can include regular rain or even thunderstorms. Either way, this will allow you to control the weather within your game at your fingertips and can even be useful if you are playing survival. Say for example you make it snow, but in turn, allow mobs to attack you outside because the sun is blocked. If you type in the clear weather command that protection that they had come outside is suddenly removed, you and you could find yourself safe once again.
Making it snow whenever you please is a major perk to have within the game. How you use such a feature and why you use it is up to you, but either way, it is definitely something to take advantage of once you deem it is the correct time and opportunity to do so.
With that in mind, take note that you can change the weather for other types of rainfall as well once you dive into the different climates that you can have in your game. Just type in your weather command and the options should appear before you.
