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.

* The animated TV show ''CloneHigh'' has an episode that continuously references an oncoming storm to highlight mounting tensions between two main characters. Joan of Arc's foster grandfather Toots LampShades this by saying "Storm's a-brewin. Metaphorically, too."

* Justified in the ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' [[NeverTrustATrailer trailer]], since the lightning shown at the end comes from a Covenant plasma flare.
** While the trailer has the circumstances "compressed" a bit for exposition's sake, the full game reflects this during the later levels, where the weather is increasingly stormy. Again justified, as the Covenant's plasma bombardment heats the atmosphere, causing rolling pressure waves and thunderstorms to break out. Some of the ice caps are even melted, causing rising floods and other climatic disturbances as more water is forced into the atmosphere.
