So I've been attempting to learn and understand the realm of weather magic, such as storm casting and binding etc. I feel heavily drawn to storm craft and I want to get a clear idea of what I can do or should do. I see so many different spells and techniques that I can get lost in them. So if anybody who practices storm craft or weather witchery could leave a comment or get in touch with me, I'd be most appreciative!!

You cannot control the weather. It is a global system beyond the control of any caster. You may be able to influence along the lines of what it is already working towards in your area. Example: If there is a chance of rain, you might be able to influence things for it to actually rain. However, if there is no chance of rain, it will not rain just because you did a spell.
But being taught is to control, there are very few people who believe in weather magick and those that do usually believe that they can control the weather.
I am on the fence when it comes to weather magick, it has been a long standing practice but whether it has any truth behind it or not is still unknown because you cannot control it only help something that is already there.
For example you may be able to make it rain a little harder or a little sooner than it already would, but you cannot create a rainstorm in the desert.
What you could do however is maybe incorporate the energy of different weather into your spells, I personally gather lightning charged water for some more powerful spells, I also use rainwater, snow, hail, etc in my magickal workings because I too feel conntected to weather. However I don't think you will find many people who believe in the kind of weather magick you are after and those that do may not actually understand what they are talking about.
