Heh heh, very interesting.  Someone else came up with the same idea I 
implemented.  However, my weather system is certainly NOT cut and paste.  
It involves a LOT of file manipulations in structs.h, as well as a 
replacing of weather.c and many modifications to act.informative.c and 
db.c, in short, more than I can handle right now giving out.  I am 
working on the 'zone weather' now, so my files are rather messy (and were 
extremely disorganized before)  Also some other ideas you might want to 
consider: Snow occurs in some places, so you might want to have it 
happen.  I have blizzards and those will blind your scan and look 
<direction> commands.  You would be surprised what you can do with 
weather, there is so much more to it than we realize.

Just a hint if you want a complex weather system.  There is more to 
weather than pressure.
