The Weather of the Pacific Northwest

by

The Weather of the Pacific Northwest Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

University of Washington atmospheric scientist and popular radio commentator Cliff Mass unravels the intricacies of Northwest weather, from the mundane to the mystifying. Accessible descriptions and illustrations of complex phenomena explain how terrain affects precipitation, how water bodies influence temperature, why windstorms follow particular tracks, and even why ferryboats seem to float above the water's surface.

Review:

"Mass... debunks the myth that the weather here is bland, mild and dreary.... [His book's] depth and breadth should appeal to anyone who has wondered why Hood River gets consistently strong winds or what cloud patterns really mean for storm conditions in the Cascades." Katie Schneider, The Oregonian

Synopsis:

University of Washington atmospheric scientist and popular radio commentator Mass unravels the intricacies of Northwest weather, from the mundane to the mystifying. 281 color illustrations.
