I agree with loki, I understand where you two are coming from, I do. However that is no way to greet someone new to this site and certainly not to our practice.
As for controlling the weather, I think if your just starting out than you should start at the basics. In the long run that will help you with your abilities and controlling them better. I can't say I controle the weather, but I have working with it before and its very erratic thing to work with. Mother nature is very independent and doesn't like controle, if you push her too much it may go the opposite way your meaning to go. I do agree that you should check out the druid threads, they might be able to help more. I don't like giving advice on weather magick, but that's a personal reason.
As for your other abilities I'm sure if you ask around and keep an ear out you can find some help with those as well. There are a lot of gifted people on this site.
Best of luck to you and welcome.
