-->Since my man and I ain't together\\
Keeps raining all the time

* In ''Series/WolfHall'', the morning of Anne Boleyn's execution is grey and windy. After the deed is done, there is a rumble of thunder and the rain begins. But the day has become incongruously ''sunny'' by the time Thomas Cromwell is back in Whitehall, slowly making his way through the corridors to see Henry VIII's joyful smile upon being informed that Cromwell has successfully ended his marriage by killing his wife.

* Arguably, the containment wall from ReBoot, which always reflects the current mood of the episode: The sky is usually an optimistic, bright blue; on days when the plot gets darker, it takes on a steel gray color; and then, as the series gets progressively darker, it switches to sunset, to emphasize the changing nature of the show, then darker and cloudier before finally looking like storm clouds to symbolize the raging war against Megabyte.

* ''WorldInConflict'' multiplayer maps have a sort of Empathic Environment: if the match goes for too long (and ''especially'' after the teams exchanged a few nukes), all colors become dull and grayish, the clouds gather and the sunlight dims slightly.
* In ''KatamariDamacy'', all of the cutaway scenes when you haven't made a big enough katamari feature rain and thunder coming down as the dejected prince kneels before the King Of All Cosmos. Justified because, well, ''he's the King Of All Cosmos'', and in one of these sequences he even mentions that he's making it rain to make his speech about how disappointed he is in you more dramatic.

* The sky is dark and overcast for the last few missions of ''AceCombatZeroTheBelkanWar'', which looks odd because it's supposed to be about noon. Of course, this being a flight simulator, and the first mission of said sequence pitting you against an elite squadron, it's possible and almost expected for the player to fly above the clouds and witness a beautiful blue sky once more, right before you have to [[AirstrikeImpossible fly underground]].

* ''Film/{{Spectre}}'': Bond and Madeline meet in cold, snowy, Austria, and she's equally cold and frosty to him. The relationship begins to improve as they head to warm and sunny Tangiers, with them finally consummating it on a train in the middle of the desert.



* Inverted in ''Literature/SeedsOfYesterday'' as Christopher Dollanganger is buried on a beautiful, sunny day. Cathy wonders how they can be having on a funeral on a day meant for picnics and sailing.



* In ''Series/AllMyChildren'' had a tornado occurring on a day when about six major storylines came to a climax.
* Soaps like this one. In February 1999, at the same time ABC Primetime premiered the miniseries ''Series/StormOfTheCentury'', ABC Daytime started its own "storm" hype by having a massive blizzard strike all four ABC soaps (easy to do, as one was set in upstate New York, which is frequently pummeled by snowstorms while the remaining three were in set in suburban Pennsylvania and presumably in close proximity to each other) and kicking several front-burner storylines into high gear.

* Occurs in ''PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd'', as a thunderstorm and maelstrom form during the battle between ''The Black Pearl'' and ''The Flying Dutchman''. Justified, because the sea-goddess Calypso had been freed from her human shell immediately beforehand, and everyone was expecting her to be angry over her imprisonment.

* Inverted with Film/DoctorZhivago. All the scenes of war and despair are shot in beautiful light and scenery (for example, [[spoiler: the scene where they shoot soldiers who turn out to be teenage students at a military school]]) while the love scenes are shot in really depressing settings.

* The play TwelveAngryMen begins with all but one juror agreeing to a guilty verdict on a very hot day in a courthouse with no air conditioning. But as the show goes on the environment becomes more and more bearable finally culminating in a rainstorm when [[spoiler: the jurors decide on a not guilty verdict.]]

* {{Storm}} of the ComicBook/XMen quite literally has an empathic environment; the weather shifts based off her moods due to her power over weather. In fact, she has to control her moods in order to prevent them from affecting the weather adversely.
