From the cover: This little book gives an excellent introductory account of the preparation of weather maps and their use in forecasting. The earlier chapters describe the observations that are plotted on weather maps: barometric pressure, visibility, wind direction and speed, temperature and humidity, cloud types, amounts and speeds, type and intensity of precipitation, etc. The later chapters describe, with many examples of plotted weather maps, the characteristic weather associated with different pressure systems, e. g. depressions and anticyclones and with fronts that separate masses of air with different origins and physical characteristics. A brief outline is given of the use of upper air charts. Finally there are analyses of four weather situations, giving the official forecasts broadcast by the B. B. C. , together with detailed comments on the forecasts.
