Weather—sometimes we enjoy it, sometimes we tolerate it, and sometimes can turn a good day bad in a heartbeat. On some occasions it becomes extreme, and in these cases it can immediately impact our lives in dramatic ways. Written in a friendly, easy-to-understand style, this text will help you understand the science of how hurricanes, tornadoes, lightning, floods and extremes of temperature happen and how they can sometimes be life changing. Vividly illustrated and accompanied by outstanding technology support, this text will give you a new appreciation for the power of nature.
