For sandstorms, you could do the sandstorm in The English Patient.
For weird weather, especially rain, there's a pretty bad Italian movie
(early Candace Bergen) called The End of the World in a Nightful of Rain in
Our Usual Bed and a really good Australian one (early Peter Wier) called The
Last Wave. And there are a ton of typhoon and hurricane movies. Probably
lots of flood movies.
Glaciers and mountains? Dust storms? Don't get me started.
