* Invoked in Literature/TheBible by [[Literature/BooksOfSamuel the prophet Samuel]], who calls for rain at Saulís inauguration as a sign that God is unhappy that Israel has chosen a human king over their heavenly King.
-->"'Now therefore stand still and see this great thing that the LORD will do before your eyes. Is it not wheat harvest today? I will call upon the LORD, that He may send thunder and rain. And you shall know and see that your wickedness is great, which you have done in the sight of the LORD, in asking for yourselves a king.' So Samuel called upon the LORD, and the LORD sent thunder and rain that day, and all the people greatly feared the LORD and Samuel."
--->-- '''[[Literature/BooksOfSamuel 1 Samuel 12:16-18]]''', English Standard Version

** It finally passes in Chapter Fifty-One. It actually turned out to be empathetic, because it didn't go away until [[spoiler: Wendy and Connie began to fully trust Bill and see the good that lay within]]. But, [[DaylightHorror unfortunately for Bill]], it signals possible doom...

* A classic episode of ''Series/TheXFiles'' "Rain King" had Mulder and Scully investigating a swindler who claimed to be able to make it rain (and sold this skill to drought-struck communities). Soon enough, they discover the man's ex-wife believes she has a sort of antagonistic version of this trope in effect (the sky seemed to cry on her wedding day, and the clouds laughed at her when she got divorced) and that is behind her ex-husband's apparent abilities. In fact, [[spoiler:she has a nerdy secret admirer who ''actually'' has this relationship with the weather, it reflected ''his'' moods when she married another man and when she finally left that guy. He had been affecting the weather for her ex's business out of guilt]].

* In ''Theatre/{{Spamalot}}'', "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" takes place in [[ExactWords a dark and very expensive forest]] to show how distraught Arthur is at his defeat at the hands of the French Taunters. The trope is neatly subverted for the rest of the song, as it starts to rain despite Arthur and Patsy being noticeably happier with the situation.

* It's raining for all of the revolution in ''Theatre/LesMiserables'', despite the fact that it takes place in June. This is especially noticeable in the aptly-named "Little Fail of Rain", when [[spoiler:Eponine is dying]], and in "Javert's [[spoiler:suicide]]", which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.
* Lampshaded in ''Theatre/TheDrowsyChaperone'', when the Man in the Chair says that "[Janet] is bathed in the blue light of a sympathetic moon, which is ridiculous because it's the middle of the day.".
