About this title

Synopsis:

The American public has always taken delight in second-guessing mass-media meteorologists. Partly Sunny not only vindicates their efforts, but arms them with forecasting tools and information far more sophisticated than Uncle Henry's storm-sensitive bunions. 30 photos and line drawings.

From Booklist:

Weather junkies are found in agricultural areas, where their passion exerts, after all, an important economic influence, and in urban centers of commutation, where it is a matter for self-defense. Fields fields a fit volume for these fans of Doppler effects and barometric-pressure-readings-as-predictors-of-cataclys-mic-events. It begins with a brief history of TV weather forecasting and a list of the 15 best U.S. weatherpersons, then dives into what makes weather fascinating. Although Fields also lists the 10 best gifts to give a weather junkie, the most useful information for those uninitiated to weather obsessing is probably his detailed explanation of current forecasting technologies and methods and his listing of weather resources available on the burgeoning information superhighway system. Interesting even for weather agnostics, the book may prove a fine companion for those nights when the dreaded freezing drizzle forces you to curl up--in bed, on the couch, or in your car in a ditch--with a good book.
