Heat waves, hurricanes, and hailstorms, OH MY!
For amateur forecasters and causal climatologists, it’s a year of fascinating facts, unforgettable storms, and the science behind them. Extreme Events—consider how Tropical Storm Denise deluged Reunion Island with 71.85 inches of rain in 24 hours, or the 8 inches of snow that fell in Laramie, Wyoming, in the middle of the summer. Extreme Places: Mecca, Saudi Arabia, is considered the hottest city on Earth, with average June high temps of 111˚. Plus the strongest tornadoes in history and Did You Know facts and terms such as a “bolt from the blue”—when lightning strikes as far as 20 miles or more from the actual storm. Printed on responsibly sourced paper and 100% recyclable.
