For thousands of years people have been using the clouds to forecast weather, but with recent advances in technology this practice has largely stopped. However, using the clouds to forecast weather yourself is more accurate than using official forecasts for short-term local conditions. This book will show you how to accurately predict the weather using the clouds, without the need for internet connection. It also contains dozens of example cloud formations.
How many minutes until it will rain?
Will it be foggy on the coast as well as inland?
When will the sea breeze fill in?
This book is perfect for anyone interested in being outdoors. It is useful for sailors, hikers, fishermen, golfers, horse riders, hunters and more. It has never before been easier to identify clouds and forecast the weather through them and could be life-saving in a survival situation. There are also simple explanations about exactly why types of clouds predict different weather.

Tom Cunliffe: “His first book, The Message of the Clouds, is so good that my Yachtmaster Instructor candidates would do well to read it.”
