Personally, I remember here in the Uk around a decade ago, the national news services were all reporting this new technology the US had developed to modify their weather by such means as creating artificial clouds and more.
The military were happy to talk about it openly back then, as a means to combat the depletion of the ozone by such means as spraying metal (can't recall which one - silver?) particles from special pods attached to commercial planes and so forth.
I think you're possibly getting confused with cloud seeding - which does not involve creating artificial clouds but does involve spraying silver iodide into storm clouds to induce precipitation. It's generally not thought to be very successful though.
