The newly revised guide to day-to-day sources of weather information appearing in newspapers, radio, and television

The Weather Almanac, Twelfth Edition is a resource for a variety of climate and meteorological data, including both domestic and international weather trends, historical weather patterns dating back 1,000 years and weather disasters. The book is complete with detailed maps, pictures, and tables, compiling climate data from a variety of sources, including the National Weather Service and the U.S. Geological Survey and recent work by climate scientists.

Separate sections in The Weather Almanac, Twelfth Edition are devoted to tornadoes, hurricanes, thunderstorms, lightning, flash floods, and winter storms—all edited from official reports by governmental agencies. These chapters serve as a basic reference for severe weather and extreme conditions, which can assist in preparing for a weather emergency. In addition, this Twelfth Edition:

  • Discusses the climatological sources and impact of global warming

  • Is updated to include a comprehensive review of climatological data through 2009

  • Is written by a meteorologist with thirty-five years of weather data collection, analysis, forecasting and teaching experience

  • Chronicles weather trends from the pre-instrumental records using tree ring and other proxy data to the present

  • Details recent weather data for more than 120 U.S. cities

  • Updated to include the 2009 Gulf Coast Hurricane season

A great deal of information is compiled on a daily basis in order to better understand how weather works. The Weather Almanac dissects this data and presents it in the same easily digestible format that has earned it acclaim through eleven previous editions. With a wealth of updated information, this new edition continues to build on its tradition of exploring the current frontiers of weather-related issues, and making them accessible for everyone.
