Pacific Northwest Weather
But My Barometer Says Fair! : A Look at Those Changing and Peculiar Weather Patterns in the Pacific Northwest, Large and SmallBook - 2002
This book offers an in-depth look into those peculiarities of Pacific Northwest weather. It acquaints the reader with why weather happens on a global scale down to the direction your campfire smoke will drift. The climate of the Pacific Northwest is as broad and varied as is found anywhere in the world, from dry eastern sections to cool and west western sections. The book explores the reasons for this. It contains historical references to past storms, including Columbus Day-type, that have affected Oregon and Washington. Are those storms different from other storms? Weather patterns that cause hot and dry conditions, as well as frigid, cold, and snowy arctic outbreaks are examined. The book is designed for the lay person, as well as a basic text in meteorology. It is a must-read for anyone interested in the weather.
