* Justified in the Johanna Gaiden of ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines''. Johanna muses that her parents are being buried on an unusually dry day.

* Occurs in ''{{Rent}}''; Angel's funeral is sunny (but still cold, being NYC in late October), probably a symbol in and of itself that even death can't dampen his/her ManicPixieDreamGirl -ness.

Weather has always been used symbolically when it comes to death. When characters die it's often a perfect day outside, with nary a cloud in the sky. There are several reasons for using the dichotomy between the bright, cheerful, cloudless sky as a counterpoint to the sadness of death. [[{{Irony}} Ironic contrast]], perhaps, or to show that, even in the midst of our grief life does go on. Maybe its just to give the resident DeadpanSnarker something to gripe about, or maybe the sunny day is an excuse for the characters to feel that much worse about the death of a loved one. Sometimes it’s ''too'' sunny and the heat just exhausts everyone physically, to compliment the mental exhaustion. Sometimes [[JustifiedTrope the funeral just takes place in a relatively sunny area]].

This trope is usually part of a MeaningfulFuneral scene.
