I remember a book that was about a secret war being carried out by Russia against America (and with retaliation) that used weather as a weapon. One of the main characters was a weatherman that started to figure this out: there was no declared war, but epic floods would ravage Texas then Moscow would see a "blizzard for the centuries" and back and forth.
The book would have been from the 1980s or before.
UPDATE Given when I would have read it, the story must actually have been published in the 70s. It wasn't written by a big name author either.
UPDATE The story went something like this: a TV weatherman started noticing that odd "freaks of nature" would afflict cities in the US and the Soviet Union. For example, there'd be a blizzard of unparalleled force that struck Moscow... then subsequently, there'd be unparalleled flooding in part of the US - or the worst tornado season on record... and back and forth it would go.
The weatherman discovered this and tried to unravel the real truth behind the events happening. In essence, the US and the Soviet Union were fighting a silent "weather war" against each other.
I want to say it was called
The Weatherman but I can't find it by that title anywhere.
The Weathermakers by Ben Bova doesn't seem to be it either.
