Come rain or come shine, musicians are ready for any weather occurrence with the perfect song. This is Ranker's list of the best songs about weather, influenced by your votes. Some of the best weather songs are about stormy conditions including lightning, thunder and wind, while other good weather songs are about beautiful days full of sunshine.

Bob Dylan has written several of the greatest weather songs of all-time. His tracks “Shelter from the Storm,” “Buckets of Rain” and “A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall” all made this list. Bruce Springsteen is another musician who loves to write about weather. His track “Thunder Road” is a top weather tune. Garbage had a hit with their weather song, “I'm Only Happy When It Rains,” back in 1995.

On the nicer side of weather songs, we have “Beautiful Day” by U2 and “Good Day Sunshine” by The Beatles. Delta Spirit's “Ode to Sunshine” also made this list of the best songs about weather.

Which weather song is your favorite? Give it a thumbs up and please add any weather-related music we may have missed.
