Synopsis

Instant Storm Forecasting by Alan Watts

Instant Storm Forecasting is an invaluable reference for anyone pursuing outdoor activities. Using dramatic photographs of cloud formations, helpful tables and practical explanations, Alan Watts equips the reader with the tools to assess the chances of being caught out in a storm, and judge how severe that storm might be. He explains how strong winds build up, how thunder and hail stones are formed and what causes hurricanes, tornadoes, typhoons and waterspouts. This comprehensive little book makes fascinating reading as well as being an essential guide for anyone about to encounter the elements.
