Starting with the practical question, "What is the weather today?" this book dives into all aspects of weather, including different phenomena like wind, clouds, rainbows, snow and lightning, right up through destructive elements such as tornadoes and hurricanes. Readers also explore record-setting weather, climates, seasons, and the many ways we record and track the weather every day. Key scientific ideas are covered in short callouts throughout the book. A glossary and index at the back help define key terms from the text and let newly independent readers exercise their research skills.
