Along with the fine art of queuing and proper tea, talking about the weather is the essence of Britishness. We're all a little bit obsessed by it. Will it snow this Christmas? Was this year really the warmest on record? And where on earth did `raining cats and dogs' come from? According to recent research, 94% of British people admit to having discussed the weather in the past six hours, while 38% say they have in the past 60 minutes. And Now, The Weather... is an almanac, a miscellany, and a celebration of our most famous obsession. Including beautiful illustrations, maps and line drawings, And Now, The Weather... is a perfect gift for the cloudspotter in your life. Features include: - The Lore of Weather - myths, legends and old wives tales about the weather. - Lost in Translation - Colloquial names for weather around the country, from Custard Winds to Mizzle. - Extreme Weather - Bizarre events in the history of British Weather including red rain and a downpour of frogs and fish. - Plus tables showing record breaking sunshine, wind speed, rainfall, heat etc.
