WEATHER WORDS AND WHAT THEY MEAN

In her familiar, attractive, cartoon-style format, Gibbons surveys weather phenomena by illustrating the vocabulary used to describe it--without being dauntingly technical, yet including such fascinating nomenclature as ""nimbostratus clouds"" and the language-enriching variety of words like ""drizzle."" A useful addition on a popular topic.
