With a calamitous history of tornadoes, blizzards, and thunderstorms, Minnesotans have a natural interest in weather predictions. From Doppler to dandelions, the WCCO-licensed Mike Lynchs Minnesota WeatherWatch reveals the secrets of weather forecasting in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. A broadcast meteorologist for over 25 years, Mike Lynch infuses the book with his trademark enthusiasm and sense of fun. First he delves into the mechanics of the atmosphere and scientific forecasting methods from the ancient Greeks and Romans to modern Doppler radar and satellite technology. He then turns to good old Mother Nature and shows how, with her guidance--in the form of dandelions and other plants, sky color, stars, critter activity, lakes, and more--we can predict the weather. Rounding out this expert guidance are sidebars on Minnesota weather history and lore, plus a state weather almanac. Beautifully illustrated with over 100 color photographs, this book equips us with the diverse tools needed to forecast the weather in the North Star State.
