In Pandaria they're fairly common, thunderstorms in The Jade Forest every few hours.

That's not what people are talking about here. There are certain pets that will only spawn when there's a weather effect in that zone. Like the silithid hatchling in Tanaris only appears during a sandstorm. Or the baby ape in Stranglethorn that only appears when it is raining.

I could be parked there for hours (and often do) with nothing to show for it because the rain has apparently stopped falling. I don't know if it's a bug or intended, but weather effects in classic zones aren't proccing as often as they used to.
It is rather irritating if you ask me. I managed to catch a spawn of onyxia before catching a silithid hatchling, still don't have one either.
