Summary
How do hurricanes get names like "Harvey" and "Ophelia"? Is acid rain really as harsh as battery acid, or is it more like lemon juice? What kinds of clouds are killers? Which place in the United States receives hardly any sunshine at all? If lightning never strikes the same place twice, how come the Empire State Building in New York City is hit 23 times every year? Who doesn't want to know the difference between the trade winds, the westerlies, and the doldrums? Or that snow comes in pink, green, and red as well as white? Or that the Hindenberg blew up after lightning ignited the flammable paint on the zeppelin's outer cover? Packed with real science, fascinating little-known facts, and experiments that are big fun (who wouldn't like to set off a tornado in a bottle?), Weather can transform any boy or girl into the smartest kid on the block
