What does Weathermageddon mean?

Extremely severe weather

‘Weathermageddon’ is a term used when the weather conditions are so extreme, it feels like the end of the world is near. This term is a combination of ‘weather’ and ‘armageddon’. It’s often used to describe severe weather phenomena such as tornadoes, heavy thunderstorms, intense snow storms (sometimes referred to as ‘snowmageddon’), hurricanes, and monsoons.

People often use ‘weathermageddon’ on social media to exaggerate their reactions to a storm, even if it’s not that severe. For example, if it’s a bit windy, someone might post, “Someone needs to switch off the weathermageddon today! I just styled my hair!”

The term can also be used to describe strange weather phenomena. If there’s a rapidly moving dark cloud or ominous cumulonimbus clouds, someone might say, “The way the sunlight is piercing through these dark clouds is giving a total weathermageddon vibe.”
