[[caption-width-right:263:Today's weather: Cloudy with a chance of divine fury. Bring umbrellas.]]

->''"All the power of the storm, from all the world, flows through my veins, and can be summoned by mine hammer at any time, wherever it is. A lightning storm in Japan? Mine. A hurricane off the coast of Barbados? Mine again. A brace of tornadoes in Kansas? Aye... mine. All that might, all that destructive force, mine to command. Channeled and guided through the mystic might of this hammer, guided right at thee!"''
-->-- '''[[TheMightyThor Thor]]''' [[note]]Source: CAPTAIN MARVEL vol. 4, #17[[/note]]

The ability to manipulate the weather. It is a {{stock superpower|s}}.

This usually includes ElementalPowers, BlowYouAway, MakingASplash, AnIcePerson, ShockAndAwe and thermal manipulation. Weather manipulation is very versatile. For example, using the wind, some weather manipulators can [[FallingWithStyle fly]]. And, as everyone knows, LightningCanDoAnything.

Sometimes these powers are used for PaintingTheFrostOnWindows. The difference between ElementalPowers and weather manipulation, is that storm manipulation is limited to the [[ElementalPowers elements]] that make up the weather. Compare with WeatherControlMachine, where you need a dash of {{phlebotinum}} to achieve the same ends.

!!Examples:

[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]

* ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'': April can make it rain.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'': Nami's Clima Tact gives her the ability to manipulate the weather.
* ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'': The Storm card that has the ability to create Tornadoes and summons huge rainstorm.
* Fate Testarossa, as well as her mother Presea, demonstrated the ability to conjure thunderstorms in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha''. However, Fate rarely uses this, preferring more local applications of her lightning-based abilities. The last time this showed up was during one of the [[ComicBookAdaptation manga chapters]] leading to ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'', where she manipulates the weather to summon natural lightning that gets around the [[AntiMagic Anti-Magilink Field]] of a group of [[MechaMooks Gadget Drones]].
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'':
** Darui uses Storm Release by combining [[MakingASplash water release]] and [[ShockAndAwe lightning release]].
** [[spoiler: The Juubi can actually create an entire storm system, filled with lighning, rain, and dozens of tornados, in a split second after merely Powering up.]]
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'':
** Groudon, Kyogre and Rayquaza. Groudon's storm manipulation is limited to creating Sunlight. Kyogre has the ability to create rain and lightning. Rayquaza has the power to negate the powers of the two others.
** Mewtwo also initiates a big storm in the movie.
* Toshiro and [[spoiler: Chojiro]]'s Zanpakuto have this power in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''. Toshiro's crosses with AnIcePerson because his ability to create a snow storm is based on his general ice power.
* [[spoiler: Wes Bluemarine/Domenico Pucci]] AKA Weather Report [[spoiler: and later Emporio AlniŮo using Weather's disc]] from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' can use his weather-manipulating Weather Report to create small clouds, rain, lightning, increase the power of his fist by adding atmospheric layers to them, make air suits to prevent suffocation, summon tornados, feel the air around him, [[ItMakesSenseInContext rain frogs, rearrange the ozone layer so that light refracts in an angle that enable to place subliminal messages on sunlight and make oxygen toxic.]]
* In ''Anime/OnegaiMyMelody'', a weather girl constantly got her forecasts wrong, pissing off the townspeople (example: saying it would be a nice sunny day when it would actually rain). When she wished her forecasts would be right for a change, Kuromi granted her wish by giving her the ability to control the weather, meaning the weather really would conform to whatever she said it would be. The power goes to her head and she starts using it to terrorize others, so the heroes defeat her and change her back to normal.

[[folder: Comic Books ]]

* ''[[TheMightyThor Thor]]'': As the quote indicates, he is the [[PhysicalGod God of Storms]]. This is one of his main abilities, and he is the (former) TropeNamer.
* ''Comicbook/XMen'': {{Storm}}'s mutant abilities allow her to create storms and manipulate [[BlowYouAway wind]], [[MakingASplash rain]] and [[ShockAndAwe lightning]]. Using the [[BlowYouAway wind]] she can [[FallingWithStyle fly]].
* ''IncredibleHercules'': Zeus, much like the character from ClassicalMythology.
* The Weather Wizard - member of the [[TheFlash Flash's]] Rogues - has this as his hat. Either through a weather controlling science wand or because of some internal ability, various depictions of Weather Wizard can summon and control rain, clouds, wind, and blizzards (making him a nice complement to fellow Rogue Captain Cold) among others. Depending on incarnation, altering weather in a particular fashion can affect his mood, which usually leaves him stressed and volatile.
* Crystal of TheInhumans can control the [[ElementalPowers classic Greek elements]], but usually uses this power to create weather effects such as storms and earthquakes. (This is likely the result of writer confusion about her vaguely-defined control of "the elements".) Once when she and Thor were on ComicBook/TheAvengers together, they tried combining their weather powers... indoors. HilarityEnsued. [[note]]AVENGERS #343.[[/note]]
* Sarah Rainmaker of ''ComicBook/{{Gen13}}''.
* One of Joshua Brand's abilities in ''ComicBook/ShamansTears''. He most commonly uses it create rain.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Fan Fic ]]

* [[PhysicalGod Susano]] in ''FanFic/JewelOfDarkness'' and ''FanFic/AShadowOfTheTitans'' has this as his primary set of powers.
* ''FanFic/ShadowsAwakening'': Tempest, one of Daolon Wong's new dark chi warriors, has the ability to summon storm clouds to attack people with.
* Rarity in FanFic/DividedRainbow.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Film ]]

* Elsa from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', much like the Snow Queen that she was based on, has the ability to create all kinds of snow and ice-related weather. The conflict of the movie is caused when [[PowerIncontinence she does this by accident]] [[EndlessWinter with no way to shut it off]] [[spoiler:until the end of the movie, where she learns how to reverse her powers to make it Summer again]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Folklore and Fairy Tales ]]

* ''Literature/TheSnowQueen'': Although, as her name suggests, she's limited to manipulating Snow and Ice.
* MotherNature is responsible for everything that happens in nature; naturally this includes the weather.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Literature ]]

* ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'':
** Zeus and his children, again, like classical mythology except the children have the same powers.
** In addition, Poseidon and his children have this ability, but they're limited to Sea-Storms.
* Tris, the weather-witch from the ''Literature/CircleOfMagic'' novels. Her book is even called "The Power in the Storm" in the British edition.
* Cyclone and Mistral from ''WildCards'' are wind-controllers.
* Played for laughs in ''Literature/SoLongAndThanksForAllTheFish'', wherein one very minor character (a trucker named Rob McKenna) is, unbeknownst to himself, a rain god, with the power that it always rains wherever he is. [[BlessedWithSuck Always]].
* ''Literature/SeptimusHeap'': [=DomDaniel=] uses a storm to try and sink the boat of the protagonists in ''Magyk''.
* In Creator/RuthFrancesLong's ''Literature/TheTreacheryOfBeautifulThings'', the storm that blows up when she is in the cottage is attributed to the piper.
* This is one of the responsibilities of the noble houses of Caederan in ''Literature/TheQuestOfTheUnaligned''. The fact that random earthquakes, floods, and hurricanes are ravaging the countryside is one of the first signs that Their Majesties King Kethel and Queen Tathilya are seriously neglecting their duties.

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]

* ''Series/TheXFiles'':
** "D.P.O": Darren Peter Oswald can manipulate lightening.
--->'''Sheriff Teller:''' Let me get this straight, now. Youíre telling me this kidís throwing lightning bolts.
--->'''Scully:''' In effect.
** "Rain King": Holman Hardt. Controls the weather instinctively: when he's sad, it rains; when he's enthralled with joy, [[ThatCloudLooksLike smiling faces appear in the clouds]]. And when he's on the verge of a mental breakdown, all hell breaks loose.
%%* Lilith in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''.
* Used as a motif in ''Series/NinpuuSentaiHurricaneger'' and ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm'', though the Rangers' actual ElementalPowers don't fully reflect it. (One faction, the Thunder Rangers, does control lightning, but the Wind Rangers' powers align with LandSeaSky instead.)
* In ''{{Series/Supernatural}}'', [[CelestialParagonsAndArchangels Archangels]] [[ArchangelMichael Michael]], [[ArchangelRaphael Raphael]], and [[{{Satan}} Lucifer]] have been shown manipulating weather on a large scale. So has [[TheGrimReaper Death]].
* The power of the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Weather Dopant]] in ''Series/KamenRiderDouble''
* This is the power of Alice Shaw on ''{{Series/Heroes}}''.
* In ''Series/{{Haven}}'', this is Marion Caldwell's Trouble. The more stressed and angry she is, the worse the weather gets. She has some degree of control over it, like making the weather target people she doesn't like, but has to calm down to get it to stop.
* Based on the Weather Wizard (above), Clyde Mardon's power in ''Series/TheFlash2014'' is to generate and control storms, which he got when his and his brother's plane was hit by the shockwave from the S.T.A.R. Labs MagicalParticleAccelerator explosion (the same one that caused Barry's lightning strike). Being a bank robber, Mardon initially uses the power to continue the trade, but later begins to feel that [[AGodAmI he's a god]]. He starts by generating wind and fog, but later moves on to creating and controlling twisters with himself in the eye. Barry is able to stop him by generating a counter-wind by running in the opposite direction of the twister (Barry has already proven to be able to to go supersonic at that point). Clyde is initially able to knock Barry away with a wind blast, but Barry speeds up and eventually collapses the twister back on Mardon.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Toys ]]

* ''{{BIONICLE}}'': Elemental Powers such as [[AnIcePerson Ice]], [[BlowYouAway Air]] and [[MakingASplash Water]] can be used to manipulate the weather in regards to the power.

It's useful for taking out a horde of foes.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Webcomics ]]

* ''TheCyantianChronicles'': Certain events in certain chapters point toward Vin being able to control the weather, or at least make it rain. A lot.
* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', Durkon uses the Control Weather spell at one point (as described in the Tabletop Games section). However, he uses it for [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0352.html a much more awesome effect]] than it is originally intended, which is {{lampshade|Hanging}}d in the [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0353.html very next strip]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'': Stormy. It's even in her name! Also Icy to an extent. She can [[AnIcePerson manipulate Ice and snow]].
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Pegasi all have this ability, to the point that controlling the weather is a common job for them. Earlier incarnations of the franchise did not give pegasi this ability. Unicorns are mentioned and eventually shown to be able to use their magic for this purpose, both by manipulating existing clouds the way pegasi do and creating clouds wholesale. Of course, those are special cases ([[WingedUnicorn Princess Luna]] is [[AllYourPowersCombine all races at once, and extremely powerful]], Trixie was under the control of an ArtifactOfDoom.]])
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' villain Vortex has this power. [[OurGhostsAreDifferent Given the nature of ghosts in this series]], he may well be the AnthropomorphicPersonification of storms. Danny himself had temporary control over weather when he got zapped by Vortex's lightning.
