Somewhat embarassingly, Tairezazh is the only of my conlangs with any weather vocabulary, and boringly enough they're subjectless verbs, eg. _andzh_ "(it) storms". Now, Tairezazh wouldn't be Tairezazh if there weren't nominalizations - in this case _andzhan_ "a storm", _andzhent_ "(the process of) storming", etc - but the verbal forms are clearly primary.
