    Default show one's ugly head

    Is this idiom used for ONLY weather conditions such as big clouds or tornados?
    Or can I use this for other negative things such as diseases and bad moods?
    Thank you in advance.

    Unwelcome people show their ugly heads when they arrive somewhere you don't want them to.
