    Idk if this is too much of a reach, but when you say ''stormy sky'' it's almost like you're making a hissing sound which implies that there's anger/evilness.

    Rain= depressing? (since rain is associated with depression or sadness)
    Brown= dark colour (foreshadows dark events which will later occur)
    Stormy= Anger
