This lively and practical book tells you all about different climates and seasons. It explains why temperatures rise and fall, how clouds, snow and ice form, and how people are able to forecast the weather. Easy-to-do projects, such as measuring humidity with your own hygrometer and using water, light and a mirror to create a rainbow, will help you to understand how weather works.
