Not really my field, but if you're not familiar you should check out James Fleming's work: http://www.colby.edu/profile/jfleming/
I apologize for taking so long to respond. Thank you for the reference and link. If you know of anyone else who may be working on weather and meteorology, please direct them this way. I am hoping that if enough people show interest in this topic, I can organize a symposium where they would be able to present their work. Thanks again for your reply.
Hi Amanda, just joined this and seen your post.
As it happens I just spotted earlier today that Alexandra Harris (university of Liverpool) - who wrote Romantic Moderns - is now working on something to do with weather... have a google.
Thanks for the message. I have been in touch with Alexandra Harris about her project. I also noticed that there will be a panel on Victorians and the Weather at the 2012 NAVSA Conference.
