Instant Wind Forecasting is a quick reference guide for all who work or play outdoors whether dinghy, coastal or offshore sailors, fishermen, motorboaters, farmers, golfers, walkers or pilots. It will help them make meaningful predictions based on the look of the sky and the feel of the day.
Instant Wind Forecasting is the perfect companion to Alan Watt's international bestseller Instant Weather Forecasting and his latest book Instant Storm Forecasting. Its easily accessible format and revolutionary presentation has established the author's reputation as a layman's meteorologist.
Alan Watts, one-time professional meteorologist, has spent considerable time studying wind changes and short-term alterations in the weather. This, combined with his enthusiasm for sailing which began with the sea scouts, has enabled him to assist people to read the weather from the signs in the sky. He is also the author of the bestselling Instant Weather Forecasting, Instant Storm Forecasting, Weather Wise and The Weather Handbook, all published by Adlard Coles Nautical.
