Writing for the general public, including young adults, Nese and Schwartz introduce the key concepts of weather and explain how forecasts are made as well as why they sometimes are wrong. Throughout the book, in sections called Stories from the Trenches, the authors recall the dramatic weather events (and at least one non-event) that kept area residents tuned in for the latest news.
