The two main parts of the weather are the chance of rain and the wind level.
Chance of Rain
On any given day, there is a percent chance of rain. On fair days, there is no rain. Scattered rain is rain that comes and goes in 10 minute periods. Light rain can last an hour and might end in the next hour. On particularly rainy days, the rain lasts all day.
When it rains, you cannot rake leaves. If you try to do so, you will be told what type of rain it is, and you will be given the option to wait for 10 minutes or wait an hour.
Keep in mind that light rain starts or stops at the top of an hour. If you are in the middle of an hour, wait until the end of the hour to save time. If it is scattered rain, you can wait 10 minutes and see if it passes.
Rainy days are a good opportunity to go to the store or check on the status of clients in other neighborhoods.
The wind determines how many leaves fall from each tree in a yard. See the following table for each type:
|Wind Level||# of fallen leaves per tree|
On fair days, no leaves fall, which gives you time to catch up on yards you might be neglecting or try to gain clients by visiting neighbors.
On rare occasions you will see a major storm hit the town, dropping a lot of leaves. Large yards with three trees will almost fill up with leaves overnight. It can be difficult to recover, but it is possible.
It is hard to predict what weather you’ll encounter throughout the 90 days you are running your leaf-raking business. Luckily, the computer in your bedroom allows you to see the highly-accurate weather forecast for the next few days, so you can prepare accordingly.
