(noun) Footage of severe weather causing damage or incredible phenomena, which are enjoyable and gratifying to the viewers. Weather porn is a common product of storm chasers
and news stations. Tornadoes
are by far the most common subject of weather porn, but hurricanes, thunderstorms and flooding events can produce effective weather porn. Some weather porn may involve no damage, such as a view of the storm itself. In this context, a good money shot
is a closeup of the storm doing damage.
Weather-related video clips that include title/keywords such as "Incredible," "Amazing," "Deadly" and other superlatives are often a good marker of weather porn.
The Super Outbreak of 2011 seemed to result in a similar outbreak of weather porn!
