In addition to hundreds of colour photos and illustrations, each weather phenomenon is accompanied by comprehensive visual aids that make learning about the subject as easy as it is fun.Organized by weather-related events the book explores weather patterns and other factors that contribute to extreme climate conditions. It offers the reader an unprecedented, comprehensive picture of the future of and for our weather.
