Rain in Minecraft can help put out fires and flaming arrows, hydrate and water farms and crops, and can even help fill up cauldrons with water. Rain often occurs temporarily at random moments during Minecraft gameplay; however, if you want rain stopped, you can disable this weather feature by enabling cheats and entering the appropriate commands.
1Launch Minecraft on your PC and select “Create New World” on the “Select World” screen. You can only stop rain by creating a new world and enabling cheats.

Before installing custom Minecraft mods on your system, contact the developer to verify whether rain can be stopped at any time using that particular mod.
