Any violence or negative action in your dreams is typically a reflection of your own inner feelings.
According to Jung, negative actions in dreams symbolize the shadow or dark side of your nature. The shadow is everything that you are repressing or denying, the hidden side of yourself that you refuse to recognize. By conjuring up such images in your dream, your unconscious is urging you to bring these hidden feelings into the light of day so that they have less hold over you, otherwise you are in danger of projecting this ‘other self’ onto other people.
Dreams about violence, crime and other actions may not only reveal your inner feelings about yourself, they may also reveal your feelings about the situation around you or in some cases, your feelings about other people in your life. The type of negative action highlighted in the dream will be worthy of your attention if you are to fully understand yourself and your situation. Although disturbing, and unfortunately more common than positive actions in dreams, dreams in which the action focuses on bad or negative feelings, words and actions are seldom predictive, so you don’t need to worry that the horrifying events will be repeated in your waking life. Recurring dreams of committing rape are a different concern, suggesting violent urges that are in danger of spilling over into your waking life.
If this is the case, professional therapy and counseling is strongly recommended. See also ACCIDENTS, ACTION AND ADVENTURES; NEGATIVE EMOTIONS; NIGHTMARES.... The Element Encyclopedia

Seeing hail in the summertime in a dream means business losses, but if it falls in the winter in a dream, it means success and prosperity. Heavy falling hail in a dream means destruction of businesses, interruption of communication and damage to roads and highways. In that sense, hail in a dream means obstruction of public interests.

Weather also can indicate our internal responses to situations. If. for instance, there was a storm in our dream our emotions would be stormy, perhaps angry and aggressive.
If we arc watching a very blue, unclouded sky, we may be recognising that we have the ability to keep the situations that we are in under control.

The weather in your dream often symbolizes your mood or state of mind.
According to ancient dream-lore, dreaming of fine weather foretells happy events and dreaming of bad weather indicates future misfortune. Although dreams in which weather features strongly may be presenting you with a forecast of sunny or stormy times ahead, modern dream analysts tend to follow the Jungian interpretation; this suggests that weather dreams often reflect the emotional climate in your waking life. Whether your dream featured sunshine, snow, rain or a gentle breeze, it is likely that the symbolism of the weather mirrored your current emotions or thought processes in waking life. Another interpretation focuses on the changeability and fickleness of weather, suggesting that your unconscious is forecasting your own change of mood in the real world.
The message of your dream is often highlighted if you felt extremes of temperature or if the weather was uncharacteristic in some way, such as snow falling in summer. Stormy skies may show arguments and anger, sunshine may show happiness and optimism, and snow may indicate that your emotions are frozen. Dreams of earthquakes, avalanches and other natural disasters suggest emotions that are so powerful and uncontrolled that they can have disastrous effects when unleashed on your waking world.

It may also be a homonym for whether, indicating doubt or choice.
To dream that you are reading or listening to the weather report foretells a change of address or some other important change in your life. To see a weather vane in your dream indicates unpredictability and versatility. You may feel that you are going around in circles. The dream may also be a pun on being vain or doing something in vain.... The Element Encyclopedia
In the past, when people lived and worked on the land, the weather was very important and people watched for patterns to help them predict the future weather. They then made up rhymes to help them to remember these patterns. Some of these sayings do contain a grain of truth. Others, particularly those that try to predict the weather for the following season from a single event, are unlikely to contain much truth. It is possible that your unconscious may draw on these ancient sayings not to predict the weather, but to predict your changing emotions or state of mind. So if an image of a red sky in the morning appears in your dream, could this be a warning, not of a storm, but of possible emotional conflict?
Here is a list of some of the most wellknown sayings.
If images that are reminiscent of them appear in your dreams—for example, cows standing in a line or crickets chirping—as well as referring to the specific symbols involved, it is always worth looking for possible interpretations concerning your mood or state of mind using the weather-related entries in this chapter as your guide:
