Concerning support, discussion and news about this mod, I'll be prioritizing Discord as my main platform, which you can join here. I'll still answer stuff from here, but I'm planning mainly use Discord.
Changelog: in 2.0.7, compatibility with Copperdale.
The Weather Realism Overhaul changes the way the game handles weather events and forecasts to make weather more realistic. For a more complete experience, I strongly recommend Better Seasonal Changes. Features include:

Forecasts Aren’t Always Accurate:
In the unmodded game, a cloudy day will always be cloudy. With this mod, however, forecasts can be unpredictable, a day forecast to be sunny can instead have rain showers or a day forecast to be rainy can remain cloudy. As a result, all weather events can happen with every forecast.

Tweaked Weather Forecasts:
Along with the tweaked weather events, all forecasts' names have been changed, and new varieties added, to complement the new events, such as Warm Fog (June Gloom), Showers, more intensities of rain, etc.
All forecasts now display daytime temperature as well as weather event, so you can get an idea of what the temperature will be like in the forecast.

Visual Changes:
Cloud covers, weather transitions and how water puddles form have been changed.

Other Minor Changes:
Changes like lightning settings and forecast thresholds that are too minor and too many to write here, you can see the changelog for that.

Worlds' Weather Changed:
Weather for all worlds have been remade to match real-world locations, using this temperature scale.
Freezing - <0 C / <32 F
Cold - 0 - 10 C / 32 - 50 F
Cool - 10 - 20 C / 50 - 68 F
Warm - 20 - 30 C / 68 - 86 F
Hot - 30 - 35 C / 86 - 95 F
Heatwave - >35 C / >95 F

I no longer use any of its files, however, it's still here as it was my first inspiration for the mod.
