The weather is always with us and, even in this modern age, affects nearly everything that we do. Yet we can all too easily feel that it is too complex to understand. This volume provides an introduction to the weather and a guide to what is happening in the sky. The book is divided into the following sections: cloud types; optical phenomena; precipitation; and wind. Weather patterns, shadows and crepuscular rays, and reading satellite images are all included, as are a section on weather records and a glossary of meteorological terms.
