Persona 5 Royal - Weather Conditions Guide

Guide on the weather conditions present in Persona 5 / Persona 5 Royal, including general weather conditions, specific types, and their effects.


Similar to Persona 4, Weather Conditions have effects on activities in the real world and on the appearance of Shadows in their realm. In Persona 5, Weather Conditions fall under two general categories: Normal Weather and Special Weather. Oftentimes, the condition changes between mornings and afternoons, with specific conditions locked to the corresponding day in the game.

Abnormal weather alters the behavior of characters in the game, going as far as changing dialogue of characters. You will know if a special weather is up for that day since there is an indicator at the upper left of the screen.

  1. man is there any way i could edit this? the information is clear but it needs to be written better. not making fun of anyones grasp of English or anything.

  2. Torrential Rain- (in game description)
    “On days with torrential rain, bad weather effects in Mementos will intensify. More enemy reinforcements will appear, but so will rare items.”

    Morgana mentions that it is similar to regular rain, but to a greater effect~

  3. 11/13, 11/14, 11/15, 12/8, and 12/9 – on these dates its flu season for Reaper farming! dont forget! 😀

    • THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! I rarely use all-caps when I write, but this warranted it. I am already in 12/2 and was sad as all hell that I could never farm the reaper and have to pay out the as- bank to get high tier personas. Thank you 🙂
