Wouldn’t it be useful to be able to accurately predict the weather simply by reading the clouds? Well, with this book, you can!
TV forecasts, online predictions and smartphone apps are all based on the same data – a number-crunched overview of how air pressure and temperature affect 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 a wifi connection – you just need to look up.
This book will give you a broad understanding of why the clouds are symptoms of weather patterns, not causes. By reading these signs in the sky and referring to the explanatory colour photographs, you will discover exactly what those signs mean.
An at-a-glance guide to the clouds for anyone anywhere in the world, on land or at sea, this book will enable you to predict the weather by recognising cloud types, shapes, colour and behaviour. It will be an invaluable companion for anyone who enjoys outdoor activities.

‘So good that my Yachtmaster candidates would do well to read it. I learned something from this book. I bet you do too’ – Tom Cunliffe, author of The Complete Day Skipper and The Complete Yachtmaster

Why should you buy this book?
For thousands of years people have been using the clouds to forecast the 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 and local conditions. This book will show you how to accurately predict the weather using the clouds and the local topography, without the need for internet connection. It also contains dozens of examples of 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?
“Reading the Clouds” is perfect for anyone interested in being outdoors. It is useful for sailors, hikers, fishermen, golfers, birdwatchers, 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.
