There is growing interest in learning about how weather systems are formed, what causes variations in the weather, and how to study and predict the movement of weather systems to enable accurate weather forecasting. This manual provides an easy-to-read introduction for newcomers to the subject, while providing a sufficient level of detail to prove useful to those who already have a basic understanding. The text is supported by numerous colour diagrams and photographs, including comprehensive illustration of cloud types and weather systems.
