Overview

Weather Forecasting by Gail Gibbons

Will I need my umbrella?
Is it a good day for the beach?
Will school close because of snow?
These are the questions weather forecasters answer every day. They can tell us what the weather is doing at any time of the day or night. But how do they do it?
Weather Forecasting tells how. With straightforward text and colorful pictures, this behind-the-scenes look at a modern weather station answers basic questions kids ask most, and makes weather forecasting more fun and accessible than ever.

"Weather Forecasting" gives a comprehensive view of how weather information is reported and recorded and what instruments are used when putting a weather forecast together. Gail Gibbons does some of her best work and puts a lot of effort in her book as she's offered full color illustrations and easy-to-understand words and sentences that children will understand, but is specfic at the same time. The book features weather forecasts for most of the seasons and includes adjectives describing words for each season. However, opperations have probably changed since this book was published in 1987 but gives a good outline about what is happening in the National Weather Service and in weather stations around the world. This was an awesome book!
