Of course it's possible :). Like Bob Ross said, "[Your program] is your world, you can create anything that you can imagine."

I just recently have started using particles to create effects, I think it would be excellent for rain/snow/mist also! I recommend playing with the example particle effects provided in the wiki section of this website.

Particle effects! Albeit for another system, check out some Unreal Engine tutorials for particles. There's a lot to be learned that will carry over to pretty much any API with a particle emitter object.
Do you recognise when the world won't stop for you? Or when the days don't care what you've got to do? When the weight's too tough to lift up, what do you? Don't let them choose for you, that's on you.

I would personally go with zorg's option. Paticles are a very expensive resource, so you should use is sparingly (blood, fire, maybe lightning),
