Hello, my friend. The weather can be annoying. In game, unless they've changed it "sorry, it never rains for me - well, only once and I was awaiting my crops to grow. All work was already done" but, you can continue to do work in the field. Plow > Cultivate, etc... the only thing you can't do is run the harvest, etc... Now, as for when it stops. In the top right corner of you screen. Where the ingame clock is at. You will see an icon > (Sun = Sunny / Cloud = Cloudy / Rain = Rainy) if you see 2 Icons there, say... the (SUN but beside it is a 2nd "smaller" icon of rain) that means. Within the next 6 hours, it will be raining in your game. So, the only way to know when it's going to stop Raining is when you see the icons change up there and of course watch the clouds? So you see the icons (RAIN) when you see (RAIN/sun) then you have roughly 6 more hours of rain. Give or take a few.

Thx!
Additional Info, when it really don't stop to rain and you really, really needs to harvest:
- when you see the rain Animation (even there is only the sun symbol), but the wipers don't work, you can harvest (I made a bug report in the german section About this feature)
- when it really rains (wipers work, rain symbol) you still can disable growing in the menu und speed up the time / jump to the next day, until rain stops and enable growing (yes, it is like cheating, but I it had one time to harvest and the rain last three ingame days, withot this cheating I have had lost 500.000 coins of crops)

Sometimes we need that save. I was playing FS17 Seasons a few days ago. First Year in, EVERY DAY through MID Summer to LATE Fall all the forecast was showing was rain. I had 4k in my bank account and close onto 100k to repay. 1 day, LATE summer. It actually rained early morning. So, the crops actually had time to dry before the rain restarted. I dropped my game speed to real time and commenced to harvesting. Twas the 1st time I dropped it lower than x5 speed. But, running the Classics from Dogface, and pulling a trailed John Deere 30 Harvester. Harvesting was no fast task. I hate rain! :lol: :blushnew:

IMO disabling growth when it's raining is not cheating considering the time scale. If it can rain through a couple growth stages, wouldn't that be like having rain for a month or two straight?

Giants forgot to include the script for rain in my copy of the game. Seriously.

Same for us all i think, it's been a right pain having to keep altering the weather in the save game environment folder all the time so fingers crossed it's at last been fixed.

The other day, I started a new save file on Felsbrunn. 3rd Harvest in, ready to harvest and here comes the rain. Had to turn crop growth off thought I was getting ready to loose my crop. It rained for 3 and 1/2 days straight.

Not really an issue for me until seasons come but would be an idea maybe to switch weather on and off don't know why that isn't an option
