weathertypes.2da added in NWN:EE allows custom Weather to be added in the Area Lighting.

The main still hardcoded limitation is that the Lightning % Chance cannot be altered, and must be set in the area properties. It might be worth, if adding custom weather, to remove the ModelLightning for snow so you can have snow without huge thunder and lightning if you want to retain it for rain.
