Here's a good start: Particle effect C2

check out the list of plugin's on the how do I... thread as well. That's how I found the link above.

Leaves Particles Demo

Here is an example I made. I'll comment the .capx and upload it after work.

I made a little change on mine, deleted 4 collision polygon points, and by making the polygon a bit smaller you have now nice overlapping when leaves are grouped together.
Still M&Ms though :D
fallingLeaves.capx

But well... falling leaves aren't really weather effects in my opinion.
What did you have in mind tastyguy ?

Sure, but slow it done and use a snow flake texture instead of leaves and you have a convincing snowing weather effect.

Oh wow! Can I use your example for my little game? And by use, I mean completely turn your example into a little game? I'm just visually inspired by it.

Hey. Thank you everybody. That looks like a good point to start with.

@yann: i am not really sure what i am looking for. Just some effects to make the level look more alive.

There. I barely did any changes though, except curve the M&Ms a little. Oh, and added some music and a background.
