About the Authors
  • First published in 1939 as the second edition of a popular 1933 original, this book contains a richly illustrated review of trends in weather forecasting and description. Shaw takes a dramatic approach in describing weather and weather forecasts, equating the drama of weather with that of the theatre, with meteorologists in the role of the audience. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of meteorology.
