Fundamental principles of the weather (8)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this clue is a triple definition!

'fundamental' is the first definition.

'principles' is the second definition.
(I have seen 'First principles ' mean 'elements' so perhaps 'principles' could also mean 'elements')

'of' acts as a link.

'the weather' is the third definition.

(Other definitions for elements that I've seen before include "He and I are two" , "eg Fire, air" , "Constituents, ingredients" , "fire and water, say" , "Rudiments of a subject" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
