Our weekend downpours may have prompted a few weather related expressions. Intense thunderstorms reference a suggestion that "the angels are bowling." We've had a taste of late spring and early summer heat and humidity thus the expression, "Hotter than a fox in a forest fire." Another popular thunder expression, "It sounds like God's tater wagon turned over!" As for heavy rain, the old saying, "It's gonna be a stump-floater and a gully washer." Here's a flirtatious hail storm reference: "She's batting her eyes like a frog in a hailstorm." You may have recognized this one when the sun is shining and it's raining at the same time; "Seems like the devil is getting married" or "Looks and sounds like the devil is beating his wife."
