The Weather Notebook has room for recording current conditions, temperature, precipitation, wind speed, barometric pressure, humidity, and special weather or personal events. It also includes amazing photography, fascinating information on how weather works, and a daily dose of weather folklore.
Looking for the perfect gift for that storm fanatic in your family? Give him a copy of this handy journal and get him started collecting his own weather data!
The Weather Wizard’s 5-Year Weather Diary allows beginning forecasters to keep track of:
- Wind speed and direction.
- Barometric pressure.
- Cloud types.
There is also space provided for any other notes they might want to jot down.
The diary includes a variety of interesting and useful information, as well. A chart of cloud types is printed on the inside of the front cover, and each month starts out with facts about snow, wind, thunderstorms, and other weather phenomena. Weather trivia is scattered throughout the journal.
And, as the title suggests, The Weather Wizard’s 5-Year Weather Diary will last for a while, too. Weather enthusiasts can open the book to any day of the month and compare five years of data at a glance.
You may want to pick up a copy for yourself to keep track of frosts, droughts, and weather trends. Enter each month’s temperatures and precipitation totals into a spreadsheet and compare the results to your area averages. After filling out a couple of journals, you’ll have a pretty good idea of the weather cycles in your location. Who knows? Maybe you’ll even start making your own forecasts.
