When it comes to the weather, there is nothing more common on the news other than sports. People don't pay much attention to the weather until they have an issue with it or are planning something for outside. They rarely think about what goes into making that weather report or how weather works. Hopefully this book will tell you those things and maybe a little more. So next time you see a weather forecaster make a mistake, you can understand why.
