Added DiffLines:

* Both literally and figuratively in Chapters Thirty-Two and Thirty-Four of ''Fanfic/ATriangleintheStars'', almost respectively. The clouds are much closer in the latter, and distant thunder is even heard. [[spoiler: And Bill himself begins to feel something he'd never felt in a long while...]]

* Following the surprise electoral victory of UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump, the front page of the ''[[UsefulNotes/AmericanNewspapers New York Daily News]]'', which is viciously anti-Trump, depicted gray skies looming over the White House, along with the American flag flipped upside-down and the headline reading [[EvilStoleMyFaith "IN GOD WE TRUST?"]] (later revised to "HOUSE OF HORRORS").

* The night of the death of UsefulNotes/OliverCromwell was marked by one of the worst storms ever to hit England, possibly a hurricane akin to that recorded in 1987. There was speculation, particularly in Ireland, that this was the Devil coming to claim his own.
* Literature/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 the 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.

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 [[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire winter is coming]]... all that matters is that the characters and audience are well-informed that The Plot is on its way.

Contrast GrayRainOfDepression, which generally indicates muteness and lack of activity -- and generally does not come with thunder or wind. Not to be confused with GraveClouds.

* ''WatershipDown'' contains quite a few chapter titles describing the coming storm in the build-up to the escape from Efrafa. It's also mentioned, repeatedly, that rabbits don't like thunder, and it creates tension in them.
