"Valuable and fun. . . .It's a superb introduction to heat and hurricanes, fronts and floods, tornadoes and thunderstorms. Bomar mixes simple technical explanations with anecdotes and historical information."
From reviews of earlier editions:
"We Texans take a perverse pride in the outrageous excesses of our climate, and in Texas Weather, we now have the first comprehensive book that explains the process. Beginning each chapter with attention-grabbing anecdotes, Bomar makes impressive sense of the hurricanes, tornadoes, blue northers, dust storms, droughts, even the 'urban heat-island effect' that prevents our metropolitan areas from cooling off at night."
"... [a] monsoon of information that does two things—it educates and gives reading pleasure at the same time.... It is scholarly without being intimidating, interesting without being frivolous."
"... certainly one of the finest, if not the finest, most comprehensive and readable works regarding a state's weather that has been published."
—Southwestern Historical Quarterly
Celebrating ten years in print, Texas Weather continues to offer the most complete, reader-friendly explanations of weather phenomena in the Lone Star State. This edition includes new information on electronic weather prediction, expanded guidelines for severe weather preparedness, and updated statistics on all record weather events.
About the Author: George W. Bomar was a meteorologist with the Texas Water Commission.
