Arthur Weasley: "Yes, a lot of offices have been raining lately. Did you try meteolojinx recanto? It worked for Bletchley."
Ron (disguised as Reginald Cattermole): "Meteolojinx recanto? No, I didn't. Thanks, D-I mean, thanks, Arthur."
— Arthur Weasley recommending the spell[src]

Meteolojinx Recanto was the incantation to a counter-charm that caused weather effects caused by Weather-Modifying Charms such as the Atmospheric Charm to cease.[1]

Known uses

In 1997, Arthur Weasley suggested that Reginald Cattermole (actually his son Ron in disguise) use this spell to stop the raining in the office of Yaxley, who was the head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement while Lord Voldemort was in control of the Ministry of Magic. He commented that it had worked previously for Bletchley.[1] It is unknown if Ron tried it or if he succeeded in stopping the rain.

Known practitioners

Etymology

The incantation for this spell is likely derived from meteorology, the study of weather, which originates from the Greek word metéōron, "high in the sky", as well as the English verb recant (from the Latin recantare, of which the first person singular present indicative active is recanto), "to withdraw or retract"[1].
