More Sky Climates And Seasonal Weather
From Oblivion Mod Wiki

This mod gives you the extra skies from j4m3sb0nd's MoreSkyClimates and a new version of my SeasonalWeather to make use of them (i have left the weather for Bruma and PalePass untouched).
Every few hours the mod will have a chance to make a weather change (it might leave it as it is) based on the current season. So you will see more sun in summer, more storms in fall, more snow in winter, etc..
Also, this mod tracks the weather if you go indoors. So if it's raining when you go inside, it'll still be raining when you step back out. It doesn't track the exact weather though, it tracks the type of weather, so if it was thundering when you went in, it'll be raining when you come out.
When indoors, the weather will be forgotten after 10mins of game time, or if you sleep/rest/travel.
Note: If you hop in and out of doors to check the weather persistance, it won't work. It needs 10 seconds or so to get around to storing the information required, so have patience!
- Stopped the weather changing in the plane of Oblivion. The two bloodthunderstorm variants from MoreSkyClimates will now be used by the mod (although they will be more rare than regular thunderstorms).
Simply place everything inside the .zip into your :\Bethesda Softworks\Oblivion\Data folder
If you own either my original SeasonalWeather mod, or j4m3sb0nd's MoreSkyClimates mod then you will need to uncheck both of them within data files and just check this new mod. This mod contains the j4m3sb0nd's sky textures (with permission) so overwriting the originals will hurt nothing.
Not every sky texture from j4m3sb0nd's mod are currently used with the seasonal changes. They still have a chance to appear but SeasonalWeather does not actively choose them.
I will continue to fine tune this as time goes on.
Let me know if there are any other regions where i should leave the weather alone (such as Bruma, Pale Pass and Oblivion plane).
Currently the weather has a 70% chance to change every two hours (some weather types can change more often if they occur out of season), let me know if that needs changing.
This is a first attempt at making a mod that utilizes another person's mod and as such i have likely missed something. Any problems will be sorted out if/as they're found
