About this book

The Weather Book is a delightful miscellany of everything remotely meteorological. It is jam-packed with enlightening facts, practical diagrams and clear explanations about weather phenomena and why they form. It includes: weather systems - electrical storms, heat waves, hail, cyclones and the good-old British drizzle; weather tales - from raining frogs in Sussex, to ball lightning and sand storms in the East Midlands; weather forecasts - how the Met Office gathers information and makes predictions; and, old-school weather wisdom - 'Red sky at night, shepherds delight' All of the above plus an array of fascinating facts, quotes and anecdotes make up this charming gift book. This title helps to refresh your memory from long forgotten school lessons and extend your knowledge on one of Britain's most talked about subjects.
