The climate in Minecraft is fairly docile. The sun rises and sets and players encounter rain and snow. But weather can’t damage players in vanilla Minecraft. That’s why you need a mod like the Weather and Tornadoes Mod. This mod adds a totally new wind system to the Minecraft world.
As the name suggests, this wind system’s most notable feature is its tornado generation. Storm clouds gather in the sky and go through five stages of increasing intensity. Eventually, some storms will spawn water spouts, tornadoes, or hurricanes.
The effects are spectacular to watch. When a tornado hits the ground or water, all the blocks nearby get caught up in the debris field. Water blocks get tossed to and fro and the ground is left with noticeable scars.
Along with tossing debris around, the mod also adds swirling leaf effects and new water particles to the air. This gives a sense of realism to the mod and makes tornadoes look even more massive and terrifying than ever before.
If you would rather not watch a tornado tear up all the hard work you’ve done in the Minecraft world, then you can edit the mod’s settings to prevent it from doing that.
