Synopsis: Weather Watch: Forecasting the Weather (How's the Weather? (Lerner))
From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-8?This fifth book in the series focuses on the work of meteorologists. Basic information on weather systems, maps, and forecasting tools used by the National Weather Service and other agencies worldwide is provided in a clear, simple text supplemented by good-quality, full-color photographs and diagrams. Brief consideration of the daily weather records kept by George Washington and other early American leaders; Benjamin Franklin's publication of Poor Richard's Almanac; and the link between folkloric sayings and weather facts add interest. Directions for making a weather station (barometer, thermometer, hygrometer, anemometer, weather vane, rain gauge, and shelter for housing the instruments) and suggestions on making observations, recording measurements, and making forecasts are included. There is some overlap with the content of earlier titles in the series, especially Weatherwise (Lerner, 1992). Students curious about TV weather reports will find this book a good place to start; teachers will find it a useful resource for introductory units on forecasting.?Carolyn Angus, The Claremont Graduate School, CA
