Control weather was a transmutation or alteration spell that changed the weather in the local area.[4][5][9][10][11]

EffectsEdit

After ten minutes of casting, the weather in a two-mile (3.2 km) radius began to change toward the chosen conditions, within the limitations of the season.[10] Older versions of this spell could affect a randomly bigger or smaller area and used the current state of precipitation, temperature, and wind as a baseline, which the caster was able to independently move up or down one level of intensity.[4][5][9] The caster could choose the direction of the wind, but not the path of a tornado or the target of lightning.[4][5][9][10] Conditions had to be compatible: you could not call for snow and a heat wave, or high winds and fog, for example.[4][5][9][10]

Druids were exceptionally adept at weather control, able to affect a 50% bigger radius[10] (or double the area[4][5][9]), with twice the duration, and, for old-school druids, two levels of intensity change for each of precipitation, temperature, and wind velocity.[4][5][9]

The post sundering version would last for 8 hours and effect the weather in a 5 mile (8 kilometres) radius, and would change depending on choice, climate and season. The effects would be between 3 types: perception changes ranging from "clear" to "torrential rain", temperature ranging from "unbearable heat" to "arctic cold", wind changes from "calm" to "storm".[11]

ComponentsEdit

The more recent version of this spell required only verbal and somatic components.[10] Older versions used incense, prayer beads or other divine focus, and the priest's holy symbol.[4][5][9] The post sundering version needed vocal and somatic components and bits of earth and wood mixed with water and burning incense.[11]
