Does the moon affect the weather on Earth?

It might have an extremely tiny influence by virtue of it's tidal effect on the oceans, which in turn drive most of the weather, but otherwise no.  If the Moon also had a tidal effect upon our atmosphere it could have a much greater direct influence, but I've never heard of such a thing.
