Colour photographs of cloud formations and their groundbreaking explanatory text enable readers to read the sky, pick up the clues and predict what the weather will do - a brilliant concept.
Alan Watts, one-time professional meteorologist, has spent considerable time studying wind changes and short-term alterations in the weather. This, combined with his enthusiasm for sailing, has enabled him to assist people to read the weather from the signs in the sky. He is also the author of Instant Wind Forecasting, Instant Storm Forecasting, The Weather Handbook and Weatherwise all published by Adlard Coles Nautical.
