Biography

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.

"Worthwhile having either at home or on board"
The Gaffers Log

"A quick reference guide for all who work or play outdoors whether dinghy, coastal or offshore sailors, fishermen, motorboaters, farmers, golfers, walkers or pilots."
All at Sea (January 2010)

"This book remains the guide for those who need to know how to tell what will happen from what they can see and feel."
Canoeist (January 2010)

"This volume is well up to the high standards of this series"
The International Journal Of Meteorology (May 2010)

"[...] fits perfectly in your pocket [...] Alan Watts was a meteorologist and his experiences and expertise have gone into this wonderful book."
Nautical Magazine (May 2010)

"There's a reason why this book is still doing the rounds – it's excellent [...] this fine book should be an essential item on the navstation bookcase."
Yachting World (April 2011)

"There is no doubt that the series of paperbacks about the weather by Alan Watts, primarily for users of inland waters, which he started in 1967, have been extremely popular as witnessed by the fact that virtually all of them have gone into several editions over that period."
The International Journal of Meteorology (April 2011)
