Weather is with us each day of our lives. It influences our existence to a lesser or greater degree according to the part of the world in which we live.

Given the enormous technological breakthroughs that satellites and radar have brought to the weather forecaster, accurate predictions remain, by nature, without total certainty. Meteorology is an inexact science where fate holds the trump card. Yet, with an understanding of the basic weather systems and of why certain skyscapes occur, it is often possible to add personal observations to the overall situation to arrive at a more accurate local forecast. This is the objective of this book.

By the use of beautiful colour photography and skilful use of colour diagrams, the reader wil soon understand what is happening to the elements about him. Predictions of wind, rain and temperature can then be made with some rationale.
