We get a very cold atmosphere filled with secrets and torment. Heathcliff is characterized by casual violence and lack of concern for manners or consideration for other people. This is only a hint of the atmosphere of the whole novel, in which violence is contrasted with more genteel and civilized ways of living. The continuous stormy weather symbolizes the tone of the novel.
