* Normand Lester's science thriller ''{{Verglas}}'', the 1998 icestorm that struck the Montréal area is an experiment by ThePentagon in the development of a climactic weapon that went wrong. The book speculate that ULF waves generated by a transmitter at Siple Station, a US base in Antarctica, caused the icestorm by affecting the ionosphere over Québec.

* In ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert Red Alert 2]]'', one of these is the Allied superweapon. Somewhat justified in that the entire American nuclear arsenal was destroyed in the game's intro, so they had to turn to new ideas for superweapons.
** The Scrin in ''Command and Conquer 3'' have the ability to artificially induce storms, which make certain units even better.

* There have been at least five weather machine usages on ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible''. The first is seen in the background of an R&D, but its function is mentioned to show [[RuleOfCool how advanced the facility was]]. The second time was used to attack [[CanadaEh Canada]]. Third brought to life [[{{Snowlems}} an army of evil snowmen]] and brought a brief raining of frogs (wait... what?) The fourth was created by "Evil Ron" and dubbed "The Mega Weather Generator". The fifth was used to make sure it was always winter [[{{Narnia}} (but never Christmas)]]. The appropriate {{Continuity Nod}}s occur.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', the weather in Equestria is controlled by direct manipulation of cloud formations by Pegasus with some resources from a weather factory in the city of Cloudsdale. This is likely a factor in the great prosperity of Equestria, as it pretty much ensures bumper crops every year. In fact, the concept of uncontrolled weather is alien to the ponies, and one of their many reasons for fearing the [[TheLostWoods Everfree Forest]] is the way that its weather could change on its own.

* In an episode of Radio/TheMenFromTheMinistry [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff (Well, the Finnish version anyway)]] a scientist creates one, and fills their office with fog after being dismissed for being crazy. One of the main characters uses the machine to help Britain to win in several sports, but it's revealed that modifying weather in one place also affects the weather somewhere else; Thus the main characters end up jumping around the world fixing the weather, but keep messing it up even more.

* In ''[[ComicBook/BlakeAndMortimer S.O.S. Meteors: Mortimer in Paris]]'', Mortimer uncovers the villains' EvilPlan to use a network of meteorological stations in order to manipulate West Europe's weather. The whole infrastructure is powered by [[ArtisticLicensePhysics Ball Lightning]]. The main objective is to create a fog in which the nitrogen level of air gets lower, turning everyone in the streets "bonkers" by breathing more oxygen, including the cops and army, this way allowing these countries to be ''invaded''. Yeah.
