About this book

Winsberg explains the forces that control Florida's weather and climate: latitude, altitude, land and water distribution, ocean currents, prevailing winds, storms, and pressure systems. He organizes the book around seasons and reports seasonal variations throughout the state, with maps, photographs, diagrams, and charts. Later chapters include advice dealing with weather hazards associated with each season, such as lightning, tornadoes, hurricanes, droughts, and freezes. An appended "weather planner for outdoor activities" gives probable temperatures and rain chance.
