Présentation de l'éditeur

Instant Weather Forecasting
has been a perennial bestseller since it was first published nearly 40
years ago. A brilliant concept, its winning formula of 24 colour
photographs of cloud formations and their accompanying explanatory text
enables the reader to read the sky, pick up the clues, and predict what
the weather will do.

With a revised and updated text, along with
new colour photographs and diagrams, this bestselling gem of a book
will be invaluable to anyone participating in outdoor activities, from
farming, gardening and walking to riding, golfing, flying, sailing and
fishing - and of course holidaymakers.

'Excellent value and a good cockpit companion' Classic Boat
'A surefire bestseller' The Yachtsman
'Another gem that's a dog-eared favourite' Coastal Cruising
'A handy and information-packed little volume' Birdwatch

4.0 étoiles sur 5 should be on every sailor's shelf 28 mars 2000

great pocket guide to forecasting the weather in the near-term future. (ie, 2-4 hours in advance) this would be an excellent companion for any outdoor enthusiast.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A very brief outline... that is really useful at sea! 15 mars 2006

This book rates 5 stars IF you use it for its intended pupose only.

Very fast. No mounds of text to crawl through. Find the photo and sky that most closely matches what you are seeing, factor in a couple of additional points, and your predictions for the next several hours, or a bit more than that, are likely to be as reliable as any other source you may have.

This little book should be an essential resource at sea.

Downside? More than half a day or so, and accuracy of your prediction will decrease. While this is always true in looking at weather forecasting tools, be certain to keep this in mind when using this very nice quick resource.

Highly recommended.

INSTANT WEATHER FORECASTING by Alan Watts (NOT the philosopher Alan Wilson Watts, by the way) is a handy and important quick reference guide that's simple to use. Simply match the sky you see with one of the photos in this book and you have a dead reckoning weather prediction for the next six to twelve hours.

It may not be a weatherfax, but for those of us who sail and depend on our informed instincts INSTANT WEATHER FORECASTING can be a lifesaver---especially in having a sense for local conditions.

I found this book through Bernard Moitessier's classic "The Long Way." Naturally after reading this amazing tale of 37,455 miles solo, below the southern capes, without touching land and without modern navigation, communication or instruments, I paid attention to the Only helpful guide he mentioned, this small handbook.

This compact guide is an updating of what sailors, mountaineers, farmers and outdoorsmen have learned over countless centuries before modern high-tech tools were available, updated with some modern references. It requires practice and judgement to use, but it develops a better sense of what is happening around you. And what you see with your own eyes is often more reliable than a forcast by someone who isn't there!

I use all the latest tools I can learn to use, GRIB files and the rest, but I do not neglect my direct observations, and this book helps me understand better what I'm seeing.

This weather book is concise and easily portable, which is an important reason for my buying it, but it is overrated as a guide to forecasting weather. It has lots of good photos with information, but I found it hard to look at the sky and then find a matching photo. There may be an organizational plan to the book, but it isn't apparent.
