He outlines the changes that have occurred in forecasting over the last forty years and relates memorable moments in his broadcasting career in a humorous and readable way.At its heart is a stunning collection of images sent into the programme by viewers and capturing the region's weather in all its many moods. Taking the reader through the "Calendar" year, they include captions that both inform and entertain.
