"With this book there is no reason for prudent mariners to be
surprised by imperfect weather forecasts or local conditions that
general forecasts may not cover. Michael Carr, himself a proven mariner,
has put together this excellent educational reference for his feloow
mariners. I highly encourage you to read this book." - from the
foreword by Lee S. Chesneau, Senior Forecaster, Marine Prediction
Have you ever listened to a weather forecast stating there may be a
slight chance of showers but the rain is coming down so hard you are
seriously considering a lifejacket while standing on the dock? During
such times, one suggestion to the forecaster runs through everyone's
mind: "Look out the window!!" That is certainly one of the
most accurate methods to forecast the immediate weather.
Everyone knows the look of the sky when a thunderstorm or squall is
moving in, but few know how to determine what is in store more than a
few hours ahead.
Frank has taken the mystery out of weather forecasting in his book
Marine Weather Forecasting. He explains how to tell more about the
weather, for hours and days to come, than any broadcast. But you must
know what to look for when you go on deck. The wind, clouds, moon and
sun all tell the story and Frank explains how to read these signs.
Anyone can understand Frank's detailed descriptions of forecasting
and the illustrations add to the ease
