Abstract:

Parzybok highlights the West's most notorious historical weather events in easily understood prose, with photographs, figures, and satellite images to explain the workings of the West's most unique, and regularly occurring, weather phenomena. With a multitude of statistics and scientific information, he explains what is causing the Salt Lake basin's "lake stink," how wide-open spaces influence Texas's fearsome windstorms called "Blue Northers," and why Albuquerque's "box effect" draws balloonists from around the world. Both meteorologists and weather junkies will find Weather Extremes of the West illuminating and entertaining.
