Folksy and Informative, and sure to delight weather buffs, this delightful entry in the Accidental Scientist series borrows as much from the Farmer's Almanac as it does from meteorological texts. Mary Miller and Tom Murphree show how large-scale weather patterns can be understood on a local basis and teach readers how to anticipate weather based on an understanding of their immediate surroundings. Filled with fascinating sidebars and anecdotes covering topics from folklore to typhoons and tsunamis, as well as illustrations and activities.
