They seem like a fine way for a beginner to start out. I am however, completely inexperiened. I'd like some tips on how to start gaining my power and using it. I want to try to make rain or snow. Help is much apreciated, thanks.
As Amber suggested, the best way to start in this practice is to learn and master the basics, and also continue to practice and improve them everyday. Weather spells do not work unless the conditions are highly favorable for an event to occur.
Basically, you cannot make it snow in the summer, or heat up in the winter. Stick to the possibilities, and what is common sense.
Also u can't just say a few words you have to visualise and feel the energy and also know how the weather is made light storm clouds for thunder and lightening are made when a cold cloud and a hot cloud merge together and then the hot and cold create the pure energy which is lightening :) so before starting look up weather paterns when a wether mainly happens like rain in autumn or something and learn in the weather is created and remember to visualise since I'm a natural atomokinetic (weather manipulator) atomokenisis (manipulation of the weather comes easy to me)
i use whether spell quite often. but as they said you can not successfully use a spell if it gos against the natural weather of what ever season it is.
but is also helps to know the scientific function of what ever whether you wish to manipulate.
for example if you wish it to rain during the summer or spring you would need to pout your intent in to what conditions you wish to attract rain. for rain requires a sudden Chang in temperature in combination with low anaphoric pressure, with what ever directional wind that will blow the clouds to your area or what ever area you wish to attract rain to. rain also require a body of water like a lake, ocean, river, or pond. so you would also need that to succeed in attracting rain to what ever area you wish to attract rain to.
