Weather is the national obsession, but what causes the weather and how does it work? The Weather Whys DVD explains the fascinating world of weather to beginners and experts alike. It is an ideal tool/present for pilots, sailors, farmers, anglers, walkers and anyone with an interest in the great outdoors.

There are 35 short videos, each lasting around 2 to 5 minutes explaining how the weather works. In clear, concise terms without reference to complex equations. In total the DVD contains over 2-hours of material.

Topics covered include identifying clouds, frontal systems, high and low pressure, understanding weather charts, air masses, winds and fog, plus much more! See below a full list of topics covered.

Written and produced by WeatherOnline forecaster Dr. Simon Keeling, Weather Whys takes the viewer from the basics of the atmosphere through to understanding weather charts and on to having a go at DIY forecasting.
