Responsible Weather Book
Says Steve Sorko

A friend flew to Mexico on a cheap 2-week holiday package and came home soaked. He hadn't known it was the rainy season. I vowed never to be caught like that. I searched for a weather book and found the Travel Planner's Weather Guide by Russell and Penny Jennings.
I discovered that every country in the world is listed, as are many island dependencies. The weather of each country is described and supported by weather tables, and there is a recommendation for the best time to visit.
Some large countries are divided into regions and the regional weather is described, season by season.
The authors mentioned that they acquired 30 years of weather records from the World Meteorological Organization, Geneva, Switzerland and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Climate Data Center in North Carolina, USA. They have presented this data into easy-to-read weather tables which show month by month weather and include morning and afternoon temperatures, rainfall in millimetres and inches, the number of rainy days expected per month and the average hours of sunshine per day.
The book sparkles with information about each country - capital, languages and topography. Additionally, advice is given about where and when to cruise, trek, dive and when to go on safari.
With the countries arranged in alphabetical order I could quickly flip through the book for my country of choice. Alternatively, I could use the extensive 16-page index which makes the search for information a breeze.
I highly recommend it.
