I have also found that on windy days with all the trees moving, UHF signal strength goes up and down. It doesn't take much to reflect a UHF signal and when it's windy and things are moving the signal strength changes quite a bit.
The only other thing that I have noticed is that when a storm is moving between my receiver and the NOAA wx radio station that I am listening to the signal is sometimes attenuated quite a bit.
If you have a temperature inversion you will notice that vhf signals will be reflected and will travel much further than normal. You may start picking up signals 2 or three times the normal distance. Maybe even more depending on how good the propagation enhancement is.
I believe that you would have to start taking rain fade into effect when you get up to 2.4 gHz and higher. Not a problem in the VHF/low UHF range.
