What will the weather be like? How do you anticipate a snowfall, measure the extent of a storm, avoid lightning? How do you combine weather reports, technical maps, satellite images, Internet weather and... common sense? Every hiker, mountaineer, paraglider or simple walker has asked himself these questions one day! The mountain climate has its particularities, and forecasting its methods. This is why Jean-Jacques Thillet has designed this explanatory guide, accessible to all, a concrete tool for knowing how to read the sky and preserve your safety. This guide explains the climatic phenomena encountered in the mountains, and enables all those who practise to forecast the weather and to adopt the right behaviour in the field in the face of meteorological changes.
