Today, most people look down when they want to check the weather, peeking at cell phones or popping open a browser, instead of looking up at one of the most accessible weather predictors of all--the sky. Knowing what the atmosphere has in store without relying on technology can be a gratifying experience, and now with "An Observer's Guide to Clouds and Weather," it is also one that is easy to learn. This informative and accessible guide walks readers through the basics of making weather predictions through understanding cloud types and sky formations. It explains, in nontechnical terms, the science behind the weather, connecting fundamental meteorological concepts with the processes that shape weather patterns. Readers will learn how to develop their powers of observation and hone their ability to make quick forecasts without complicated tools. Whether you're an amateur weather enthusiast or a beginning meteorology student, "An Observer's Guide to Clouds and Weather" will help anyone who prefers looking up to looking it up.
