Cloudy With a Chance of Awesome

Some day in the future, when people get nostalgic about the Weather Channel, they'll remember October 30, 2009 as the day it all went wrong. Because that's the day the Weather Channel begins broadcasting movies. Of course, the movies will be weather related, and what better weather-related movie to kick off the Friday night film series than The Perfect Storm? (Twister would have been better.) Hosted by meteorologist Jen Carfagno, the series will also include relevant weather commentary (how do tornadoes pick up houses? how do storms become perfect?). TWC is planning to show Misery and Deep Blue Sea along with The Perfect Storm, but clearly they're going to need a lot more movies if they plan to start the spin-off network, the Weather Movie Channel. Here are some helpful suggestions:

Tornado
Tornado!
Tornado Warning
Twister
Night of the Twisters
Atomic Twisters
Twister: A Musical Catastrophe
Storm Chasers: Revenge of the Twister

What'd we miss?
