Philip's Guide to Weather Forecasting provides detailed information on how to make your own forecast and covers every aspect of weather forecasting, from what causes the weather to information on recognizing clouds. Details of weather systems, depressions, anticyclones and hurricanes are included, as well as information on the extreme weather that has so dominated the news in recent years.
Local weather, such as wind systems, visibility, frost and snow, is featured along with optical effects such as rainbows, haloes and mirages. The author, Storm Dunlop, explores the full range of weather forecasting, from professional forecasts and charts to satellite images and weather watching – including instruments you might use at home.
Philip's Guide to Weather Forecasting features numerous colour photographs and diagrams, and is ideal for the amateur forecaster.
