* This is how Napoleon's campaign in Russia ended up with a colossal failure: as the French army was invading the Russian land all the way to Moscow, the winter came. And with it chilling blizzards that decimated the ill-equipped troops.

Even ''[[TalkAboutTheWeather mentioning]]'' it is TemptingFate. If the mission depends on {{Phlebotinum}}, transportation, or an easily-damaged MacGuffin, weather of this sort will ruin whatever conditions are needed for the original objective. Also useful for [[ClosedCircle preventing rescues]]; compare SnowedIn.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Videogame/MegaManX6'': Rainy Turtloid's stage has acid rains occuring after you go through certain parts of the stage, that will do DamageOverTime to your character. The rains are apparently generated by special machines, that you have to locate and destroy, but not before you destroy their shield generators first.

* Chroma generates these in ''FanFic/TheRainsverse'', as a kind of side effect to her powers.

* In ''Film/FlashGordon'' the movie, alien emperor Ming the Merciless has a series of buttons entitled "Hurricane", "Tornado" and "Hot Hail". There's also one that says "Earth Quake", strangely enough.

** Gears of War 4 ups the ante with windflares, which are localized hurricane/tornado combos featuring winds intense enough to shred buildings and hurl vehicles through the air, miles from the actual vortex. They're accompanied by bizarre laser-like discharges of continuous and ''mobile'' lightning which can and will kill you if you don't evade them.

* A plot device in the film ''Film/IKnowWhereImGoing!'': a gale stops Joan Webster from being able to crossover to the Island of Kiloran, delaying her marriage to a rich man. Romantic shenanigans ensue.

* As per the ''Dungeons and Dragons'' example above, the third chapter of ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights: Hordes of the Underdark'' is set on the eighth level of the [[IDontLikeTheSoundOfThaTPlace Nine Hells]], a frozen plane with a constant blizzard that deals cold damage. By that level your party is probably badass enough to have a few elemental-resistance items sitting around to ensure you can walk untouched through the storm.

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', it is not a good idea to stick around when the thermometer drops faster than a stone. And, that's even beyond the fact that BizarreSeasons giving long, hellish Winters are in play. More specifically, a sudden, localised drop means you might just be due a visit from the [[HumanoidAbomination Others]] [[ZombieApocalypse and their Wights]]. [[AnIcePerson They like the cold]]. It (and, its carry-toy commonalty called "a freezing fog bank") either follows them like an obedient puppy, or they just need the general conditions to be right to play with it. Either way, it's hinted they can use ice and snow in ways [[WeatherOfWar that can turn very deadly, very quickly]]: their ice swords and armour are far from normal, for starters. And, then, there are whatever "ice spiders" are. Or, any other tricks they might well have up their sleeves, [[spoiler: like, maybe... sea-ice bridges or self-building siege-ramps]]. And, Winter has come.
