Does Weather ball's power increase when the weather is not normal?

Like rain, sun, sand, hail becuase it only has base 50 power in regular weather but Pokemaster said it had 100 so for my Roserase in a sand storm would it have a base 100 special rock type move. Or would it be better to go with HP(rock)

"When no weather condition is under effect, Weather Ball deals Normal-type damage. During any weather condition, Weather Ball attacks with a different type and its base power doubles to 100. The type that Weather Ball is depends on the weather conditions at the time it is used. It will be:

* Fire-type if it is sunny.
* Water-type if it is raining.
* Ice-type if it is hailing.
* Rock-type if there is a sandstorm.
* Normal-type if it is foggy or there is no special weather condition in effect.
* ???-type if Shadow Sky is under effect. 

Type power-ups from the weather will be put into effect, as well as STAB caused by Castform's type changing from its ability, Forecast. "

Problem is, Sandstorm will change Weather Ball's type, but not Castform's form. Castform only has 4 forms: Rainy, Sunny, Snowy, and Normal. There is no Sandy form for Castform
