Cloudy with a Chance of Murder is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the seventy-fifth case of the game and the nineteenth case of Pacific Bay. It takes place in Jazz Town, a district based in Pacific Bay.


Three months after Hurricane Yves hit Jazz Town, Amy and the player went to a destroyed neighbourhood to provide aid, only to find the body of weatherman Clifford Grady with his neck sliced.

During the investigation, Agatha Christmas, Clifford's landlady, reported a break-in in his courtyard. Moreover, Richie Lacroix, the victim's employer, celebrated his death on air. The team gathered enough evidence to arrest Marie Bordeaux, Clifford's sister, for the murder.

After denying the accusations, Marie admitted to the murder. Clifford failed to predict the arrival of Hurricane Yves. When it hit the Bordeaux's house, Clifford did nothing to save Marie's daughter Colette from dying during the storm before her tenth birthday. When Clifford refused to attend to the girl's funeral, Marie was then pushed to her limit, thus slicing Clifford's neck with a weed whacker. Judge Dante sentenced her to 10 years in jail, with chance of parole in 5 years.

After the trial, Hannah and the player investigated Peggy Pascal's theory about Hurricane Yves being a man-made storm. In the weather station, they found hurricane readings which (per Hannah) showed that Hurricane Yves was created spontaneously, while normal hurricanes grew gradually. They talked to Peggy, which claimed that Hurricane Yves was created with the help of a weather-controlling machine. The team then gave her back the hurricane detector she lost at the destroyed neighbourhood.

Meanwhile, Agatha asked Amy and the player for help to secure her property. There, they found a newspaper article about the Puppeteer, a serial killer that murdered their victims by dismembering them and hanging them like puppets. Per Russell, the murders had happened long ago and the Puppeteer had suddenly stopped killing. Since Madeleine Deville was investigating the Puppeteer, Russell and the player interrogated her. She said that she recognized and tried to interrogate a survivor of the Puppeteer, which was none other than Yann, whose parents were killed by the serial killer.

  • The title of this case is most likely a reference to the American children's book and its film adaptions Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
    • It could also be a reference to the Castle episode of the same.
    • On the other hand: it seems that the case's title and plot were heavily inspired by "Cloudy... With a Chance of Murder", an episode of the American television series Psych, in which a weatherman is murdered as well.
  • This case is one of the cases of Pacific Bay in which the killer and the victim are related.
  • In the crime scene "Cluttered Desk", a screenshot of Criminal Case is displayed on the laptop screen. Interestingly, it is a collectible object.
  • In the crime scene "Courtyard", a piranha plant from video game series Mario can be seen.
