Instant Weather Forecastingby Alan Watts
Instant Weather Forecasting is a 24 color photograph guide to forecasting the weather in the hours ahead, and it also provides some information on what likely weather trends will be. The photographs are arranged to show skies during many different weather situations. A simple scientific introduction explains how to use the pictures, while the actual forecasts are set out in tables facing each photograph. A brilliant new approach to forecasting.
From the title, its immediate appeal to sailors is obvious but my guess is that its appeal to many sailors and others came when the first sailors discovered it really did do what it says on the can and told all their mates. What does it do? The book has 24 full-page colour pictures of the sky and alongside each, the author explains carefully but not too technically what exactly you are seeing and what this tells you about what the weather is likely to do next. It's as simple as that, which is why reviewers long before me have said every boat should have one.
