Tristan Gooley – The Secret World of the Weather – How to Read Signs in Every Cloud, Breeze, Hill, Street, Plant, Animal and Dewdrop

The weather changes as we walk around a tree or turn down a street. There is a secret world of weather – one that we all live in but very few of us see. Best-selling author, navigator and adventurer, Gooley gives a fascinating account of how to discover the simple rules that explain the weather signs in order to learn skills that enhance every minute you spend outdoors. By understanding the microclimate, you can predict weather easily.

In conversation with James Crowden
