The National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Weatherby David Ludlum
Interest in our nation's weather patterns is rising -- as witnessed in the popularity of the Weather Channel -- and this guide is the most popular reference to every type of weather system, cloud formation, and atmospheric phenomenon common to North America. The 378 dramatic photographs capture cloud types, precipitation, storms, twisters, and optical phenomena such as the Northern Lights. Essays with accompanying maps and illustrations discuss the earth's atmosphere, weather systems, cloud formation, and development of tornadoes and many other weather events.

I have about 5 weather books and I think this one is the best. It is not just a weather book for first time watchers but also advanced watchers.
If you have only one book or if you need a gift for a your person who would like to learn about the weather this is a good first book.
This book is very descriptive with good pictures. It is everything you could want in a weather field guide.
