Really attractive! Great pictures and illustrations-lots of great weather and climate information."--Willard Scott, Today Show weather reporter

"Paul uses his 25 years...as a meteorologist to let readers explore the why and hows of weather...a fascinating look at the forces that influence our lives every day."--Mike Seidel, Weather Channel meteorologist

Improved technology is teaching us more about the weather all the time, and with new knowledge comes new concerns and confusion. Is global warming real? Where is Tornado Alley? And just what are GOES satellites and NEXRAD Doppler? Meteorologist Paul Douglas provides the answers to all these questions and more, along with vivid and fascinating illustrations, photos, trivia, and graphics. Find out what a difference a degree makes; as well as information about El Niño, the 15 worst storms of the century, and how to protect yourself against the worst that the weather can bring. From the distinctions between a weather warning, watch, and advisory to the definition of an F-5 tornado, it has all the essentials, clearly explained.
