The World of Weather
The author is already highly regarded for his other
meteorology text, “Pilot’s Weather” also listed here.
Given the enormous technological breakthroughs
that satellites and radar have brought to the weather
forecaster, accurate predictions remain, by nature,
without total certainty. Meteorology is an inexact science
where fate holds the trump card. Yet, with an
understanding of the basic weather systems and of
why certain skyscapes occur, it is often possible to
add personal observations to the overall situation to
arrive at a more accurate local forecast. A valuable
addition to any VFR pilot’s repertoire.
