Any mods/cc in your game ?
If you have the same issue on a new vanilla save, could you please create a new thread then. This one is for mysterious weather.
COuld you also try enabling the options, go into the game, play some, then go back to your options and turn them off again ?
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
I've just had this happen myself in one save, though I usually have all weather affects on, so wouldn't usually notice it. I did have rain and snow on, with no storms and that seemed to be working fine but after I turned all weather off, now I'm having thunderstorms in my game (it's spring, about to become summer, so I don't know if the same would happen with blizzards). The other thing I did was change the season length from 28 days to 7 days as I wanted it to be summer without cheats. I have no mods/cc in my game and my game version is 151.77.1020. I even exited my game and went back in to see if that would help and the storm ended, changed to rain and then that stopped. I thought that had resolved it but later that same game day evening another storm started. You can see my settings (which were already like that) and if you look in the background you may be able to see from the middle icon there's a thunderstorm going on (this is from the first time it happened).
Thanks and regards,
Keep in mind if you play in Strangervillie the story has its own weather you will have to complete the story for the normal climate to take affect.
I am experiencing this problem too. I had successfully disabled thunderstorms in the game options until the latest patch. Now it doesn't matter what option I select: "None" or simply "Rain." I still get thunderstorms. There are too many. It's sort of ridiculous.
Like others on this thread, I have disabled Rain/Thunderstorms and Snow/Blizzards. However, my sims get thunderstorms on every Mysterious Weather and they get those a lot!!!
Please look at my screenshot of my sim's calendar.
Including the past four days (which don't appear on the calendar), my household are having Mysterious Weather every other day for 11 consecutive days.
Isn't that a bit excessive?
For your reference, I'm playing without any cc or mods.
And, yes, before each gaming session, I delete the localthumbcache and splotlight.en_us package files then repair my game.
Please tell me that this is a bug that will be fixed.
Considering that I have disabled rain/thunderstorms, I find it hard to believe that so many thunderstorms and so many Mysterious Weather days are "by design"?

I was very hesitant to buy Seasons because I didn't want my Sims to die from overheating, hypothermia, or lightning strikes, but I was assured I could disable those options. Thus far, disabling the temperature was the only one that was true. I'm now on my second Spring, and both times, I've had thunderstorms that destroy things in my backyard, even though I've had the setting to be Rain only. This Spring, however, 2 of my Sims have now been struck by lightning, one of them being in the middle of the house. After the first Sim was struck, I immediately changed the setting to No Rain or Thunderstorms, and the storm went away quickly. The next day, the storm came back, and another Sim was struck by lightning. I'm very paranoid about losing my Sims to random stuff that happens in the game. I almost want to uninstall Seasons.
