Animal Crossing: New Horizons - When Does The Snow Melt and Go Away?

Not long to go, until we say so long to the snow.

February 13, 2021

If you’re like me, you’ve been having a blast in the snow in Animal Crossing: New Horizons since last year. There are the Snowmen, the wonderful music, the Christmasy vibes and even the dung beetles. However, for those looking to landscape their islands and start to reshape their lands for 2021, the snow can present a bit of a problem. Now, I’d be happy if the white stuff stayed forever, others, maybe not so much. So, for their sakes, in Animal Crossing, when does the snow go away?

Animal Crossing – When does the snow go away?

The good news for those looking for the snow to melt, you don’t have too long. The snow that has settled on the rooftops of the houses and the floor of the island should be gone by no later than February 24th, based on information from the Official Animal Crossing: New Horizons Companion Guide.

What comes after the snow?

We are then back to Spring weather in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. That means it will be mostly sunny with an array of cloudy and rainy days. It also means that we are back to the first set of weather many players would have experienced if they bought the game when it first came out. Alongside the weather changes, Spring sees the reemergence of many bugs and fish, the return of Bamboo Shoots and one of the prettiest events in the game, Cherry Blossom season. This takes place from April 1 to April 10 every year.

What else is still to come in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

In the immediate future, we have the return of both Pavé and his event, Festivale. This is a giant celebration in which players can return feathers to the party-loving peacock in exchange for a range of dance moves. Following that, Nintendo has already teased that we will be receiving a range of Super Mario furniture items within the game. After the Mario event, who knows? But the possibilities are endless, especially if the game keeps selling as well as it has!
