8/18 reduced amount of rain for Brindleton Bay in summer and increased the chance for sunny days because some people commented that there was not enough sun. Also removed the chance of rain in early winter and decreased the chance of rain in the end of spring. (on 8/10 uploaded the wrong file that didn't include the changes. Sorry.)
TLDR: Brindleton bay still has a lot of rain, but less in late spring and early summer. Also has more sunny days.

Seasons was a great expansion for the sims 4, and one feature that was very fun was the unique weather and temperatures for each world. EA did a pretty good job giving some worlds unique weather (like Windenburg), however they didn't go far enough, and unfortunately some places feel to samey with only slight changes. Another disappointment is that EA made thunderstorms almost exclusively in Summer, which is a shame because they are done well and could potentially work in other seasons.

Indilwen posted a great mod called Arctic and True Desert Weather which can be found here http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=615376. While her mod is awesome, and inspired me to make this mod here, the author of that mod made the same weather type for all seasons (i.e. either freezing and snowy all year long or hot and burning all year long). This mod aims to improve the weather of all seasons for all worlds except
New Crest by changing the type of weather and temperature than can occur in each season (early, mid, or late). It also alters the weight of all the various weather and temperature for each seasons so certain weathers are more likely to appear on some seasons, and other weathers won't appear at all.

This mod changes the weather and temperature for every world in the sims 4 (except New Crest) to make it more distinct and unique.

Willow Creek Willow creek is near a swamp and like Louisiana, so the weather is hotter with little to no snow. In spring it gets hotter quickly and it stays slightly hotter in fall with chance of rainstorms early on.)

Oasis Spring Weather is hotter throughout. Chacne of sunny and hot days in all seasons (except mid-winter) and temperature can reach burning in late spring and early-mid fall.

San Myshuno Weather is a mix between New York and San Fransisco. Very cold weather in late fall, winter, and early spring. Lots of cold and cool rain and potential thunderstorms in spring. Little rain in summer with no rain in mid-late summer

Windenburg Weather is generally colder with blizzards possible throughout early and late winter and some snow probable in early spring. Summer has less chance of burning weather and fall starts off warm and cool, but becomes cool and cold later on with wind.

Brindleton Bay Still rainy throughout with rain storms in spring and summer, but now more chance of cool or cold rain and windy days (except in summer). Less sunny days and more likely to have cloudy or partly cloudy days. Late fall and early spring have higher chance of possible snow, and are colder.

Forgotten Hollow Weather is significantly colder than before. Summer is warm or cool with possible hot days except mid summer where hot days are just as likely. Fall is equally cool and cold and gets colder with chance of snow in mid and late fall and lots of cold rainstorms. Winter is freezing, and snow is likely, but less blizzards and guaranteed snow than Windenburg, Brindleton bay, and similar worlds. Spring has small chance of snow, and has potential freezing weather up until mid spring and more cold thunderstorms. Gets mostly cool and warm by late spring. Finally, there is a greater chance of clouds or partly cloudy than sun in all seasons,

Granite Falls Now it is more of a snow escape. Summer is warm or hot with sunny days. Fall is mostly cool until late fall where snow is likely to be seen. Winter has lots of snow with potential blizzards throughout. Spring starts off with snow which dies down and ends by late spring.

Selvadorada Weather mostly the same. Spring now has potential for rain storms and can become burning by mid spring, Early fall still has potential rain storms and burning temps.

The mod also conflicts with Arctic and True Desert Weather (Sims 4 Seasons Mod) http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=615376

While the mod was simple to make, it took a lot longer than expected because there was over 80 resources that needed modifying.
