View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Britain is obsessed with its weather. But how many of us have the foggiest about clouds, rainbows, winds, or temperature, let alone the ozone layer, Chaos Theory, or the new Ice Age? For professional and armchair weather watchers, this browsable guide to our weather and climate considers topics as varied as acid rain, biblical weather, cold snaps, and dust from the Sahara. Considering how the weather affects our working and social lives, even down to the food we buy, Dick File also examines weather lore and describes in detail how to read what's happening in the sky and the air around us. This book is aimed at a general readership, especially readers of the Guardian (in which Dick File wrote the columns on which this book is based); weather enthusiasts; science students (mainly at school level - meteorology is now part of the national curriculum), and students of meteorology at all levels (as meteorology taught at evening classes).
