Learn to "see" the forecast in the hidden weather signs all around you--from the New York Times-bestselling author of The Lost Art of Reading Nature's Signs

In this eye-opening trove of outdoor clues, groundbreaking natural navigator Tristan Gooley turns his keen senses to the weather. By "reading" nature as he does, you'll not only detect what the weather is doing (and predict what's coming), you'll enter a secret wonderland of sights and sounds you've never noticed before:
  • Listen for the way crickets chirp faster as the temperature rises.
  • Spot how snowflakes shrink with colder air and grow just before they stop falling.
  • Let perching birds point out the direction of the wind.
  • Learn why pine cones close up in high humidity.
  • Watch out for storms when clouds are more tall than wide!
Most fascinating of all, you'll discover distinct microclimates with every step you take--through the woods or down a city street. There are unique weather clues to be found on opposite sides of a tree--and even beneath a blade of grass! And once you can read the forecast in every cloud, breeze, sunbeam, plant, and raindrop? You may well delete your weather app!
