Overview

Instant Weather Forecasting
has been a perennial bestseller since it was first published nearly 40
years ago. A brilliant concept, its winning formula of 24 colour
photographs of cloud formations and their accompanying explanatory text
enables the reader to read the sky, pick up the clues, and predict what
the weather will do.

With a revised and updated text, along with
new colour photographs and diagrams, this bestselling gem of a book
will be invaluable to anyone participating in outdoor activities, from
farming, gardening and walking to riding, golfing, flying, sailing and
fishing - and of course holidaymakers.
