Do you only play one save game ? I believe these settings are by save just like the aging settings.

So just to make sure that's not the issue.

Yes, I only play 1 saved game. 

But just now I noticed it was "surprise weather" day. 

But still, if I disable it, it shouldn't occur, right? even on surprise weather day. ?

This is a bit hard to test for me. Did it only happen for you on the surprise day ? I tried changing during a thunderstorm and the storm almost immediately seized so it might be a surprise weather issue.

Did you get it on other occasions ?

Looks like this is indeed tied to mystery weather

I have all options turned off and yet I still get rains, storms and snow. I always seem to get snow on the first day of autumn too... why snow in early Autumn?

 

I should expect if these optioned are turned off then they shouldn't appear at all.
