* ''Literature/TheTaking'' starts off with an unnatural storm enveloping the entire world, starting with impossibly dense waterspouts that feed record rainfall worldwide. The rain itself even feels unclean. It's far from the worst thing to show up that night, however.

* In ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' hostile weather is a serious danger to the heroes, understandable considering that includes Venusian rainstorms (thankfully not acidic), Martian sandstorms and lightning storms in the upper atmospheres of Gas Giants.

* An early episode of ''ThePacific'' is only the most recent example. While everyone else contracts tropical diseases, it finally comes a clear blue day. The [[DrillSergeantNasty Gunnery Sergeant]] tells everyone to wait for the rain to start and shower in it. He gets undressed in the middle of the camp and lathers up, loudly reciting the Marine Rules of Conduct regarding cleanliness. Then the rain stops immediately. Gunny looks up at the sky and shouts ''"Is '''that''' all?"''

* ComicBook/SinCity is located in a desert but when it rains, it comes down in a torrent, drowning out the background. This serves as a plot point when it becomes difficult for Dwight [=McCarthy=] to dispose of some bodies in a tar pit.

* Ray Bradbury's short story "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Long_Rain The Long Rain]]". The crew of a crashed rocket ship must trek [[ScienceMarchesOn across the surface of Venus]], where the rain never stops.
* The city of Trowth, in Literature/TheCorsayBooks has a downright malevolent climate, with winters cold enough to kill in moments and exotic thunderstorms that can drive people insane. The weather often wrecks havoc with everyone's plans.
* In the finale of Literature/CodexAlera the storm is alive. That picture up there actually happens. A furystorm is tearing apart the battlefield with claws of lightning and the Big Bad is nearly torn to shreds by the storm swallowing her. The rain gets so thick that flyers are almost swimming. All in all it is a bad idea to piss off the north wind.

* ''Film/YoungFrankenstein''. [-(Frederick and Igor are exhuming a dead criminal)-]
-->'''Dr. Frederick Frankenstein:''' What a filthy job.
-->'''Igor:''' Could be worse.
-->'''Dr. Frederick Frankenstein:''' How?
-->'''Igor:''' Could be raining.

* Parodied by ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' in "No Loan Again, Naturally": Marge is crying after landlord Ned Flanders has evicted the family from their home.
-->'''Homer:''' Don't be upset, Marge. At least it's not raining! (after a pause...nothing happens) [[{{Beat}} See?]]
* Happened in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' when Mojo Jojo kidnapped the narrator and took his place. If I remember correctly, he at one point forces the girls to walk somewhere rather than fly, leading to this:
-->'''Bubbles:''' At least it's not raining...
-->'''Mojo Jojo:''' Hm...Good idea! ''(It starts raining)''



* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' in "Brian Writes a Best Seller."
--> Stewie: (after being left alone in a city, downtown, so that he has to walk to the hotel) Well, at least it's not raining. (A guy runs up, stabs him in the back, and runs away)
** Later on, the same gag is repeated, and ''then'' [[DoubleSubversion it starts raining]].



* A joke among reenactors is "When you mention the weather, the rain starts up again."

* Highstorms in the Literature/TheStormlightArchive, though their intent and purpose has yet to be explained.
** And even more so the Everstorm, which the enemy summons in the second book. Like a highstorm, except nastier and fueled by the Cosmic Principle Of Hatred. Oh, and it turns the omnipresent parshmen into AlwaysChaoticEvil demons known as Voidbringers. It also travels in the opposite direction from common highstorms, rendering the defenses made to protect against highstorms largely useless.

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'':
**
Highstorms in are massive, hurricane-like storms that blow through the Literature/TheStormlightArchive, though land every few days, blowing from east to west and carrying the mystical [[{{Mana}} Stormlight]]. They are so severe that the entire world has been shaped by them; ninety percent of the continent has no soil because the storms have stripped the land down to the bedrock, plants and animals look like things found underwater and can retreat into shells or burrows when threatened, and even the people build their intent and purpose has yet structures in triangles, with a point facing east to be explained.
reduce wind drag.
** And even more so In the second book, the Voidbringers summon the Everstorm, which is much the enemy summons in same as the second book. Like a highstorm, Highstorm except nastier and it goes the wrong way, west to east, devastating a world built with the other direction in mind. It is fueled by the Cosmic Principle Of Hatred. Oh, of Hatred and brings with it turns the Voidspren which turn [[spoiler:the placid and omnipresent parshmen parshmen]] into AlwaysChaoticEvil demons known as Voidbringers. It also travels in the opposite direction from common highstorms, rendering the defenses made to protect against highstorms largely useless. Voidbringers.

Contrast EmpathicEnvironment tropes, where the weather merely sets the mood rather than actually influencing events. Compare WeatherOfWar and GeniusLoci.
