Mmm... My bones ache... The signs point to rain, yes? Watch yourselves.
— Hannah

Weather (Japanese: ??? ??) is a general term referring to the weather conditions present during a battle. Aside from Fog of war the more general weather types, like rain and sandstorms, appear in the Fire Emblem series very infrequently.

Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade and Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade introduced most of the weather types, and many have not been present in a game since those two in a way that effects gameplay. Though, for instance, Fire Emblem Awakening's Chapter 10: Renewal features rain, but it does not hinder units whatsoever, merely being there to set the mood of the chapter.

Weather types

Fog of war

Main article: Fog of war

Fog of war is a weather condition that reduces visibility. Fog of war can be caused by several things, literal fog, darkness at night, and, as mentioned below, sandstorms and snowstorms.

Sandstorm

A sandstorm near Arcadia in Elibe.

In Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade the sandstorm around Arcadia features in Chapter 14: Arcadia as fog of war. It does not penalize units in any other way, aside from visibility, as per standard with fog of war. In Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade it is only used in cutscenes, like when Hawkeye first appears, and does not affect gameplay whatsoever.

Snowstorm

Chapter 19A: Bitter Cold in The Binding Blade.

In The Binding Blade the snowstorm weather condition is featured as a cause of the fog of war in Chapter 19A:Bitter Cold.

In Fire Emblem it does not come with fog of war, but instead imposes a movement penalty on units that are outdoors. Like rain it can come and go during the duration of the chapter it appears in. A snowstorm occurs in all variants of Chapter 25E/27H. During the chapter Nils will comment on the condition of the weather, he will say if the snow is about to start or end.

Rain

Rain is a weather condition that hinders unit movement. It does not hinder units in any other way. Units on horseback receive more severe movement decreases than units on foot. The rain weather condition can stop and return sporadically during a battle. Depending on the chapter either Lyn or Hannah comment on if the rain is going to start or stop soon.
