The word "meteorology" is from Greek μετέωρος, metťōros, "high in the sky"; and -λογία, -logia.
It is not the study of meteors so why not weatherology? After all the study of climate is called 'climatology'.
The word "astrology" comes from the Latin term astrologia ("astronomy"), which in turn derives from the Greek noun αστρολογία: ἄστρον, astron ("constellation" or "star") and -λογία, -logia ("the study of").
It is easy to understand why these two words are often confused even though only one is a science and the other is more like an art form or fairy tale.
I'd go for 'weatherology'.
