* TheBible is a reliable source of such associations of strange and adverse weather with significant events: we have the whole world going black and cold and stormy during the death on the cross of Jesus, for instance. And Literature/BookOfRevelation is full of grim forebodings that the End of the World will be accompanied by some fairly dramatic weather phenomena - storms, lightnings, rains of blood. et c.

** An odd little anecdote concerns Tolkein's one and only attempt at a science fiction story, perserved as a snippet in one of the ''Unfinished Tales'' anthologies. Written in the 1940's at the prompting of his friend Creator/CSLewis, in an attempt to {{Homage}} Lewis' style and themes, the action takes place in the South of England in October 1987. (seen as sufficently far into the future) during the worst storm ever to hit England. And in October 1987 (fifteern years after Tolkein's death) - guess what happened in the South of England...

Something about the weather lends itself well to OminousForeshadowing. Whenever trouble looms in the near future, any suitably perceptive character can play narrative weatherman and give a plot forecast -- which, unlike a normal weather forecast, is 100-percent guaranteed to be true. If a storm isn't on its way, then perhaps a cold wind is about to blow, or [[ASongOfIceAndFire winter is coming]]... all that matters is that the characters and audience are well-informed that The Plot is on its way.
