    GTA Weather

    I know this is going to sound daft but I thought there would be a wide range of different weather's throughout GTA V free roam I think that was misleading by Rockstar tbh the only weather effect that are not in free roam I haven't seen are -

    Snow
    Thunder & Lightning/Rain

    those were only mission type weather effects, those above have not been in free roam ever since iv been playing it. I hear there's a cheat for snow but I don't use cheats.

    I've seen a fair bit of thunder in the normal game whilst free roaming - rumbles the controller, too! It's matched with heavy downpours.

    Other than the North Yankton missions, you don't want snow in GTA V. It'll look awful because it gets rid of the shadows and the snow doesn't interact with the environment.

    Thundery weather definitely looks and sounds nice.

    I've had a bit of everything ranging from light showers to heavy rain to thunder storms, even thick fog where I could barely see more than 50 metres or so.

    Oh and obviously sunny too!

    I once had fog come out of nowhere when I was flying out past the Palomino Highlands, while uncovering the last couple unmarked areas on my map. It was an eerie little moment.

    I really don't think snow would be in free roam. It's pretty rare in that area, though it would have been nice if Mount Chiliad had snow cover. It does look interesting next to sunshine and palm trees.



    I've definitely seen thunder and lightning. Maybe not the actual lightning, but definitely the flashes.

    My favorite is flying high during a light rain and seeing spots of where the sun is shining through.

    Uh there are thunderstorms with lightning, maybe you've been playing for like 2 hours. There's no snow though, which is a little saddening. Hopefully North Yankton becomes a potential DLC city in the future. But I really want San Fierro and Las Venturs in HD glory.

    Rainy and Thundery weather is rare though. It's mostly Extra Sunny, Sunny or Cloudy in GTA V.

    Snow is only available through the cheat weather options

    But the weather is so freaking cool and when it rains, it rains

    That could be true, but games can just lie a wee bit

    I wasn't questioning why it was rare. Just stating that it was. It's understandable that the OP might not see Rainy or Thundery weather while free roaming.

    R* only do snow for mission based parts of the GTA games, and san andreas and GTA V are the only two games in the series to introduce snow

    The mission in san andreas, was the trip back to Liberty city and GTA V was the other to bring it in for the opening mission and another mission in the game

    Yeah earthquakes and tornadoes etc seem like a good idea. Tbh, it really does seem like the game was over hyped...its a great game, but it does get boring after a while...

    I think they might still bring about snow later. They already have the engine designed for it...or assets or whatever.

    But yes, there is thunder in the game and it's the best i have ever seen in a game.

    there are a lot of things about this game that tops everything i have EVER witnessed in a video game...even considering what we're seeing next-gen as of yet.

    Well, the snow looks good in the Ludendorff, North Yankton map because it's part of the environment. Much of the map probably isn't solid either to help conserve memory, despite looking large in the pause menu.

    I would rather just see snow as the default weather type in a new GTA game. Especially if Rockstar decide to do a new rendition of Carcer City (instead of referencing the place in every GTA game since GTA III).

    I do not think R* will add snow as a basic weather, because they might deem it nothing important to use within the cities they use for the GTA GAMES

    Unless they make it mission based and intro based

    i don't see why they wouldn't. it's probably not easy to do with the resources available. expect all weathers next-gen.
