See also FisherKing and EnvironmentalSymbolism. For a living, even sapient environment see GeniusLoci. Similar to, but not the same as, WeatherSavesTheDay, in which the weather facilitates the ''plot'' of the story; in this trope the weather augments the ''mood'' of the story.

* In ''Series/AllMyChildren'' had a tornado occurring on a day when about six major storylines either came to a climax or kicked off.

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.
