Summary from original publisher's catalog:
Few science writers are as child-friendly as Dr. Fred Bortz, whose previous books have been praised as "solid and intriguing (Booklist) and "fascinating and thought-provoking" (School Library Journal). Here he shows kids how to predict the weather in their own backyards -- using simple, inexpensive, self-built meteorological instruments that add up to a fully operational weather station. Based on a state science fair winner, this project can easily be adapted by weather-loving readers for their own school fairs. Or they can simply enjoy the book's wealth of fun weather facts, simple explanations of weather concepts, and additional guidance for online research.
Meet co-author and noted meteorologist J. Marshall Shepherd, Ph.D.

Review in Science News magazine
The perfect companion volume to Dr. Fred's Weather Watch is this five-year weather diary. It's far more than just a log book and ideal for any readers who plan to use Weather Watch as the starting point of a science fair project. Click the link or cover for more information.
