In order to determine the weather, roll 2d6 on the Weather Type Table. Then roll 1d8 on the appropriate weather type table to find the current level of the weather.
Whenever "Weather" is rolled on the Kickoff Table, use this system:
If the weather is Nice, roll 1d6. On a 1-2 there is a change in the weather. Roll a weather type and 1d4+2 for the level of the weather.
For all other types of weather, roll 1d6. On a 1-3 the weather gets better, on a 4-6 it gets worse. Decrease or increase the level by 1d3.
Any MA reductions can not result in a MA of less than 1.
