50 Ways to Improve your Weather Forecasting
This is a book about practical weather forecasting and it starts where most textbooks finish. Weather forecasts give you a lot of information about the weather to come, but they often leave out a lot of the detail and the timing of changes can be vague. This book shows you how to translate the basics into practical weather forecasts so that you can work out what it will be like in your area and along your proposed route. Sailors will be able to make better use of the available wind and avoid difficult areas, whilst powerboat drivers more interested in the sea conditions will be able to find the smoothest waters for a better ride. With the help of this book, readers will pick up expert tips such as- predicting the weather at sea from scanty weather forecasts, knowing what conditions to expect when near cliffs, river estuaries and valleys and knowledge of how the wind affects tides. 50 Ways to Improve Your Weather Forecasting distills Dag Pike's experience gained from over 50 years of driving everything from high-speed powerboats and lifeboats to ships and sailboats. Written by one of the most experienced seamen in the world, it is your guide to practical weather forecasting techniques that will get you safely to your destination in fine weather and foul.
