Weather can be changed using setWeather and setWeatherBlended functions. In GTA: SA, every weather has different parameters for the sunrise, morning, midday, noon, afternoon, sunset, night and midnight, so a weather can vary a lot deppending of the time of the day.
Non-standard weather ID's between 20 and 255 are also supported, but they might be buggy at some moments of the day.
MTA: SA has custom weather functions which can modify how a weather is rendered, but in this list the weathers are described without taking that into account. Also, using setWeatherBlended allows for more undocumented effects.
If you want to see some screenshots of the first 45 weather IDs during different times of the day, visit this page for now.
