An at-a-glance guide to the clouds for anyone taking part in outdoor activities on land or at sea, anywhere in the world. This book is an accessible and practical handbook for predicting the weather by recognizing cloud types, shapes, color, and behavior.

TV forecasts, online predictions and smartphone apps are all based on the same data--a number-crunched overview of how air pressure and temperature will have an impact on the weather across a large geographical area.

But to get an idea of how the weather will develop for the precise spot where you're standing (or walking, sailing, golfing, fishing, etc) you don't need any equipment or any in-depth scientific understanding. You just need to look up.

With this book in hand, you will get a broad understanding of why the clouds are symptoms of weather patterns, not causes. People have been reading signs in the sky for thousands of years, and with clear, full-color photographs, this book shows you exactly what those signs mean.

"Well researched--practical information in an easy to assimilate form." -Professor Richard Collier, former President of the Royal Meteorological Society
