Bill Evans is a New York Times bestselling author and an Emmy Award-winning senior meteorologist for a major television station in New York City. One of the things he enjoys most is talking to young people about weather. Middle-schoolers in particular, Evans says, are deeply interested in the natural world and have an insatiable curiosity about weather - especially extreme weather. Warning! Weather! covers the topics students most often ask about, from tornadoes and hurricanes to lightning and the dozens of different kinds of snowflakes. Evans addresses weather myths and facts, from 'Can it really rain fish?' to 'Will opening a window save my house during a tornado?' (For the record, the answers are 'Yes' and 'No.' ) In Warning! Weather!, Evans tells his most exciting personal weather stories: of flying with the Hurricane Hunters, riding pell-mell through Tornado Alley with storm chasers, visiting the Coldest Place on Earth, and more. Warning! Weather! also includes weather experiments that can be performed at home without expensive equipment. Extensively researched and packed with charts, tables, illustrations, and amazing photographs, Warning! Weather! is an entertaining and educational addition to the library of anyone interested in weather, science, and the natural world.
