David longed for a just King to reign in the fear of God. That would be as "a morning without clouds" (2Sa 23:4). The word "as" introduces figurative language, but this does describe the weather patterns of the Millennium, which may be more pleasant than any weather since creation.
The weather during that reign will contribute to a fruitful ecological system. In Psalm 72 (as both the KJV and JND translate it), places that rarely produce a harvest will wave with abundance of grain (v 16). While the results of sin will be rolled back from creation, they will not be eliminated. The curse of sin will not touch the heavenly city, but the nations will still need "healing" during the Millennium (Rev 22:2, 3). The complete removal of every trace of sin awaits the Day of God (2Pe 3:11-13), the new heavens and the new earth (Rev 21:1-5). We know that some regions of the earth will lack needed rain (Zech 14:16-19). This will be the direct result of disobedience to the King.
This leads to the conclusion that the weather during the Millennium will be controlled by the Lord in such a way that fruitfulness will abound and, where appropriate, sin will be directly and immediately punished by means of the weather. Justice will not only control the governmental systems, but the ecological system as well. Except where human depravity will express itself, conditions in that day will be "right."
