Well they said that each map will have its own environmental hazard in it. So if they don't add weather effects, I won't be disappointed at all. Plus they are adding vehicles in the bigger maps, which is also a huge plus for me.
I actually wouldn't mind if lightning did get random people, but only if it was like... Only certain areas would be experiencing lightning at certain times, so players could avoid the lightning storm altogether. Maybe players who don't move for long periods of time during a storm will 'build up a charge' increasing the likelihood that they will get hit.
OR... It would be could if weather could have affect on other things. Like, even if a lightning storm doesn't hit people, if the radar was impared in the proximity of the storm, etc.
It would also be really cool to have certain weapons who's performance was minutely affected by weather, particularly drudge weapons as they are bio based. Another candidate would be the Eclipse which might cool faster in a storm.
