    It seems to be a type of evergreen.

    Starting with a band and trying to make the clue fit the band is a guaranteed way to get nowhere.

    Australia makes way more sense though, and my first guess there would be AC/DC.
    Bad guess is bad.

    Why? They're from Australia. That satisfies all the conditions of what I said.

    It's the source of Cinchona bark (called fever bark), which is what contains the quinine that's extracted in the production of Tonic water. So one could guess Tonic, but I don't know the weather connection.

    Weather.com has no results for "Alstonia."

    1. They're from Australia is not a good enough reasoning. It's all about the tree in the picture.

    2. AC/DC is never going to be DLC.

    In that case, since it's a picture of a tree then we're obviously getting Porcupine Tree DLC. Or perhaps Rush DLC including the song The Trees. Like come on if it was AC/DC there would be something clearly indicating it was them. Not saying there isn't but we certainly haven't found any reason to believe it's AC/DC at this point.

    Doubt it, they're a one hit wonder band.
