Product Description

Review

For general readers, St. Clair, a weather forecaster on The Weather Network, offers a guide to Canada's weather that explains why it occurs, how it works, and how it affects the country's residents. Along with many color illustrations and photos of phenomenon, he describes weather in the different seasons, forecasting, weather disasters in the country's history, and climate change. (SciTech Book News 2010-06-00)

When May brings both snowstorms and heat waves, it's no wonder the weather is a popular topic of conversation... As meteorologist Dave Phillips writes in the foreword, weather is "our national soap opera." This book helps you understand the plot. (Good Times 2010-08-31)

No one has more to say about the weather than Chris St. Clair with his long-standing role on the Weather Network. The book is filled with weather trivia...but there is more than just facts. St. Clair gives explanations of how weather systems work. Through illustrations and photographs, we gain understanding of how events like tornadoes are born. The four seasons are depicted across the country, showing the best and worst of the weather. There is a special section devoted to Canadian weather disasters. (Terry Peters North Shore News 2012-11-21)

Wonderful photography... beautifully produced. (Leslie Cockburn Daily Gleaner Fredericton 2012-06-29)

A sure-fire winner... A great family-oriented book to help encourage younger readers to be inspired by the science of weather predicting and reporting. (Jodi DeLong Halifax Chronicle Herald 2012-01-00)

No one has more to say about the weather than St. Clair with his long-standing role on the Weather Network. (Terry Peters North Shore News 2012-11-21)

The amazing coverage of topics, the photographs, diagrams and maps contribute to an entertaining and informative book. (Janet Groeneweg Lethbridge Herald 2013-08-24)

Just bought this book recently at Costco. It is really a fine book about weather from a Canadian point of view.
The text is well written in a folksy manner but with clear science based information. The graphics are phenomenal and the pictures are superb. I highly recommend it.
