Weather conditions can change in an instant in Eorzea and it's best to be prepared! Several activities in the game depend on the weather conditions. These include:

Major cities and some settlements have an NPC known as a Skywatcher. These NPCs can tell you the current and upcoming weather conditions for each zone in the game. One can also see the current weather condition of your current zone by hovering over the icon in the top-right corner of the minimap. Weather conditions change at 12:00 am, 8:00 am, and 04:00 pm Eorzean Time.
