In amusing and delightful prose, Robin Page shows how applying simple common sense to country lore - based on observing animal and plant behaviour, watching clouds, the stars and the moon - anyone can become well-versed in Britain's difficult to predict and often wayward weather.

Renner discusses the best information sources to guide you, clues to watch for in the field, and how to analyze it all, with particular emphasis on potential threats due to thunderstorms, mountain winds, snow, and avalanche hazards. If you do get caught under stormy skies, he'll tell you how to limit your exposure. The book is filled with tip lists and concrete examples. Renner also includes chapters on weather patterns region by region across the U.S., highlighted by reference maps. The book is in the Mountaineers Outdoor Basics series.
