It's a double-whammy of weather news, courtesy of SOE's John Smedley. The studio's CEO dropped falling facts across Twitter last night, showing a series of snow-covered landscapes from the upcoming H1Z1. In addition, Smedley revealed that weather effects are being planned for Planetside 2.

Soon after, Smedley confirmed via a reply that, in H1Z1, they "are going to make it so the elements matter"—implying that the snow will have an effect on a character's survival. It's not yet known how weather will be implemented in Planetside 2, however, and whether or not it will be a purely aesthetic element.
