About the priority of Mega Evolutions.

Not sure if this has been proven from the demo with Mega Mewtwo, but how does the priority of the ability or typing work?

Say I have a Charizard and I'm facing Kyogre. Drizzle had just been activated recently and it's stuck with Thunder via Choice Scarf. If I activate the Mega Evolution, will Drought work immediately or will Kyogre be able to strike with 100% accuracy before the ability kicks in?

On another note, say I expect a water attack and I want to defend its power by switching to Mega Ampharos for the dragon typing. If I make the switch, am I able to summon the mega form immediately before the water hits Ampharos in its normal form?

These possible restrictions could cripple the metagame for Megas, so I would like to know for closure.

Ive wondered too. I assume mega weather will work the same as switching. As for transforming to resist, i think the transformation goes first. unless they attack right after though, the opponent could just decide not to use that attack anymore
The heart is shaken more by a single action than a thousand words.
