Below is a checklist of Other storm-related items on postal items (stamps, souvenir sheets, aerogrammes, postal cards, etc.). Catalog numbers, years of issue, and notes on the items featured are given when available. If readers know of additional information or images, please contact the authors using the e-mail addresses at the bottom of this page.

Philatelic items that refer to specific types of storms are found in their own dedicated pages. Items of a more general nature that don't naturally fit into any of those pages are included here. They often feature the word "storm" (or synonyms in English or other languages) with undefined storm types, or in contexts not directly related to the weather (e.g. metaphorical or poetic usages). They may also include storm depictions that are ambiguous (e.g. in some works of art).
