The Forest Wiki

Snow is an alternate type of precipitation in The Forest, experienced in the mountain area only. It lacks lightning and thunder, though it still further exacerbates a cold condition. It does rain in the snow areas, though it appears as snow particles instead of rain. This will fill up water collectors and old pots with water.
