The MET Office Book of the British Weather


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. An interminable topic of British conversation, the British weather is here presented in all its wet and windy glory, as recorded over a 30-year period from 1971 to 2000. Detailed maps show how the climate differs from season to season and from region to region and identify trends and the effects of both human and natural influences on the climate. It also looks ahead to see what our weather might look like a century hence as it is affected by climate change. Fascinating!
