I forgot about PGR, that game had awesome weather, even snow! 
 
Gears though is pretty good in terms of just rain.

It was real enough to scare my dog who is petrified of thunder. My mother also was wondering why she heard thunder.

Also the thunder lighting up the clouds... amazing!  
But I must say, the footage of STALKER:CoP looks stunning and eerie!

I personally think the rain from Act 3 of the first Gears of War sets a great, foreboding mood overall. I agree with the Morrowind and Oblivion comments above, and heartily second PGR 4 as a great example of beautiful, elegant weather effects, it is very nicely done.
 
Good question by the way.

Just had a great rain experience in RDR the other night.  Rainy, Thieves' Landing, in the bought house, great sound effect...
 
PGR4 has the best rain visual effects probably...  Actually no.  Heavy Rain...

Sadly Stalker now looks dated. I admit it was amazing a few years ago. But it did not age pretty.

I'd say Clear Sky AND Call Of Pripyat. People have seem to forget the water/rain FX in Clear Sky is also in CoP, and it is looking gooooood.

It may sound kinda lame but i also remember the rain being really good in RE:4.  That scene where you wake up and it's raining, then you walk forward and the parasite comes out of the Genado. Definitely felt a real chill and was constantly looking around to make sure i wouldn't be flanked by Genandos i couldn't see.

Off the top of my head, I enjoyed the rain in Left 4 Dead 2, Modern Warfare 2, and Heavy Rain. All of them felt very atmospheric and heavy to me (Who'd have thought Heavy Rain would have good rain effects that felt heavy?)

Heavy Rain, and Stalker Clear Sky and Call of Pripyat.
