thank you
All the above are good books.

David Burch's book can be a challenge to wade thru stand alone. It is much better as one of the extensive resources available to you when you sign up for Star Path's Marine Weather course. If you really want to expand your marine weather knowledge thats the path I recommend.

Re: help on weather books

Thank you for the boost. The first edition has just about sold out. I have updated for a 2nd edition due out next month.

Re: help on weather books

The best I've seen BY FAR is David Burch's Modern Marine Weather. Be sure to get the third edition - he really stepped up his game with respect to the tools and processes currently available at sea to develop your own local forecast and to evaluate the information from met services.

Cheers,

Re: help on weather books

more tittles I came across

BOOKS

The American Practical Navigator. Nathaniel
Bowditch. Defense Mapping Agency Hydrographic/Topographic Center. One of the best values
in marine literature. Chock-full of weather, oceanography, and navigation data.

The Annapolis Book of Seamanship. John Rousmaniere. Simon & Schuster. A good all-around reference with an excellent section on weather.
Guide to Facsimile Stations, 10th Edition. Klingenfuss Publications. Hagenloher Str. 14, D-7400
Tuebingen, Germany. A list of all the fax stationas
around the world with sample charts, schedules,
and frequencies.

Instant Weather Forecasting. Alan Watts. Sheridan House. A cloud-based forecasting system that
will give you another way of checking the forecasts.
Well organized with nice color photos.



The Sailorís Weather Guide. Jeff Markell. Sheridan House.

Weather for the Mariner, 3rd Edition. William J.
Kotsch, Rear Admiral, U.S. Navy, Retired. Naval
Institute Press. For years one of the basic texts
everyone carried aboard. A little out of date, but lots
of interesting data nonetheless.
.
The Weather Wizardís Cloud Book. Louis D.
Rubin Sr. & Jim Duncan. Algonquin Books (Chapel
Hill, NC). A small but interesting work on clouds. A
good bet to carry aboard along with Wattís work on
cloud forecasting.

Weather Trainer. Starpath School of Navigation.
311 Fulton St., Seattle, WA 98109-1740, USA.
info@starpath.com. Software to help you learn the
weather forecasting process.
