* Scenes in ''Series/DarkAngel'', when they do take place during the day, are always cloudy and overcast. Though this could just be because the show takes place in UsefulNotes/{{Seattle}}.

* Defied in ''{{Transistor}}'', where the public [[WeatherControlMachine is able to control the weather via popular vote]], but when Red checks a terminal that contains a weather ballot, rain is specifically left off of it (the Transistor laments that they can't make it rain to cover their tracks.) [[spoiler: Near the end of the game, Red gets admin privileges for the same terminal, and is able to make it snow instead.]]

* Music/MindInABox's albums - [[SequelSong set within a cyberpunk continuity]] - all take place at night, when Black is engaging in operations for [[BigBrotherIsWatching The Agency]]. The cover art for ''Memories'' depicts Black standing before a pitch-black city, and the final song in the album, "5ynchr0ni7e" begins with White musing on the city.
-->''The night is black like never before. From the roof of the Agency, the entire sprawling city looks like a dark maelstrom that constantly changes form...''

** This stands true for western Oregon and Northern California as well, hence the names "Silicon Forest" and "Silicon Valley," respectively.

** This stands true for western Oregon and Northern California as well, hence the names "Silicon Forest" and "Silicon Valley," respectively. Pretty much anywhere on the west facing side of the Cascade mountains can be put under this trope with little trouble.

* On the Planet/City of Mort in ''SLAIndustries'', it rains for approximately 364 days per year. Which is perhaps fortunate, given that even Mister Slayer himself doesn't want to see what happens to the when it stops raining and all of the serial killers, hired mercenaries, gun-wielding gangsters, drug-fuelled war veterans, crazed mutants and even his own Operatives get hot and bothered.

* Shanghai, the MegaCity ''par excellence'' of China ([[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/ad/Shanghaiviewpic1.jpg/800px-Shanghaiviewpic1.jpg see here]]), gets almost twice as much rain yearly as London does, despite England having a reputation for dismal weather.
* Some U.K cities, with their highest concentration of surveillance/security cameras in the world can be though of having some cyberpunk elements. And the U.K has a reputation for overcast, wet weather. Particularly "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_London_Tech_City Silicon Roundabout]]" (where many upstart tech companies, non-profit organisations and UK branches of multinational businesses are based) in London.
* Hong Kong, often described as a city straight out of a cyberpunk novel, used to (and still occasionly does) have air quality issues that result in copious amounts of smog. In addition, it does have a monsoon season.

* Of course, in any discussion of this trope, you can't forget [[JapanTakesOverTheWorld the Cyberpunk Japanese Neo-Empire]], the financial, cultural, and political heart of any classic cyberpunk world -- and a nation that's even rainier than the UK. UsefulNotes/{{Tokyo}} averages 60 inches of rain per year (for comparison's sake, America's wettest city, Mobile, Alabama, averages 66.3 inches annually), and many cities receive frequent [[http://en.rocketnews24.com/2012/09/02/guerrilla-rainstorm-caught-on-camera-from-tokyo-skytree/ "guerrilla rainstorms"]] due to both the climate and the urban heat island effect.
