EDWS - Enhanced Dynamic Weather System

This Mod completely changes the Weather System in all Areas of Skyrim to a more Immersive Weather feeling!

As often requested i´m very proud to Present EDWS - Enhanced Dynamic Weather System.
With this Mod you´ll have more often Rain and more often Snow without breaking or overriding any Weather States. It will be just a game of luck if your Weather is Rainy, Snowy, Cloudy or Clear. All Weather States are still there,
but the Chance to get Rainy or Snowy Weather is higher and the Chance to get Cloudy or Sunny Weather lower, almost balanced to not break immersion. Snowy and Rainy Weather States are also dynamic, just like Cloudy and Clear weather.

Features :

- More often Rain and Snowfall in all Areas, but only Areas where you find Rainy or Snowy Weather e.g.
it will never Rain in Winterhold because it´s too cold there for Rain.
- Riften now has also Rain (only light Rain)
- Winterhold now has also MediumSnowy Weather, not only HeavySnowStorms
- Windhelm now has more often Snowstorms (They were called Stormcloaks, right?)
- Solitude now has more often Rain (also rainstorms)
- Markarth now has also Rainstorms, not only light Rainfall
- Whiterun now has more often Rain (also rainstorms)

This Mod is also available at SkyrimNexus :

For more Immersion i recommend these Mods too : ---More Rain ---Nore Snow

On Steam :

Deeper Snow (More Snow)
More Rain

Update 26.02.2012

As some of you requested, EDWS now comes in Different Versions with Always Rainy Weather - Always Sunny Weather and Always Snowy Weather, but this update is only availabe at Skyrimnexus, because i can´t add different Versions in one File at Steam.

- Three different requested Versions :
- An always Rainy Weather Version -- Light and Heavy Rainfall all the time in all Areas.
- An always Sunny Weather Version -- Sunny Weather all the time in all Areas.
- An always Snowy Weather Version -- Light and Heavy Snowfall/storm all the time in all Areas.

Update 19.02.2012 :

- Reduced Overall Rain frequency
- Fixed (hopefully all) Areas where Rainfall only occured for a few Minutes

Update 12.02.2012 :

-Hopfully fixed all Language Issues for all Versions - Confirmed no more Language Issues!

Update 10.02.2012 :

-Fixed language Issues for International Version.

Q: "What the Heck? Rain and Snow is falling trough Solid Objects!"
A: There is nothing i can do about it at this time. This "Bug" would also appear without the Mod, but you would not notice so intense, because Vanilla Rain and Snow is much softer!

Q: "My Background turns to white at Rainstorms, what can i do to fix it?
A: This is a conflict with another Mod like Realistic Lightning, Dynamic Shadows, or any other
Visual enhancement Mod. Check your load order and load EDWS after any those kind of Mods.
Could also appear when using an ENB Profile.

Q: "During Rain or Snowstorms NPC´s are walking around as if it is the sunniest of days, can you fix it please?"
A: Without a clearly new scripted Weather System this is not possible and sadly i do not have the time to do it. Maybe we will get an Update for the Weather System in the future from Bethesda, so we do not have to create a whole new scripted weather system.

Q: "Sometimes it Rains or Snows for just a few seconds - Bug?"
A: This happend to me very very rare, but it has something to do in the way the Weather system works and in the next Updates i will try to fix it to best possible result.

While I certainly appreciate the hard work and effort put in this, Skyrim is often beset with blizzards and thunderstorms that last for days on end- on top of this, your mod turned the sky blue and made it snow in even the Soul Cairn of the Dawngaurd DLC. Like, I'm not even mad, but... Why though?

I get this bug where is snows or rains inside building or even the soul cern. How do i get rid of the weather effects and does it go away after a while?

It looks cool, but I am worried that it will always be rain or snow and its heavy rain and snow

Is it just me or does the snow look really sparkly in your video? It could be youtube; I did see a lot of youtube blurring so you might want ot try making a 60fps recording to replace this one.

Quick question... does it work with "tropical skyrim" enabled? It changes snowstorms to sandstorms.

I've reinstalled skyrim and have been playing for a few hours with a new game.. I've yet to see any rain at all and have been using this mod. Is there something I need to change about the load order?

Does this mod play well with the Pure Weather mod?

What about snow in Whiterun and Riverwood ?
