Predict Weather - almanac and isobaric maps 2005 product reviews

Need to know when to take an umbrella?
When to cut hay?
Planning a trip?

Ken Ring has been called New Zealand's only long range weather forecaster. His book will tell you the weather for most New Zealand towns and regions for all of 2005, with daily weather maps that will closely match those in the local newspaper. Based on mathematical theory about the Moon cyclically influencing weather. Ken's predictions have proved startlingly accurate.

As well as weekly radio talks, Ken's forecasts are syndicated monthly in newspapers and magazines. His website www.predictweather.com is attracting a growing following amongst agriculturists, mariners, skiers and event organisers.

Utter nonsense. Total claptrap. Impossible claims.

That was what, I admit, I was thinking BEFORE I read this book. However, after 10 weeks of comparing Ken's predictions against the actual weather, I have found myself quite impressed.

Allowing a 2-3 day swing, the book is actually almost bang on. A few wrong estimates, but that's to be expected, is it not? Less than 3 days per month have been wrong so far. Not bad really... good enough to make broad plans from, such as camping, long travel drives, etc.

However, even to my untrained eye, the isobaric maps are quite clearly off prediction, however the overall weather distribution is quite sound. A case of the ends being more important than the means.

Overall, quite a handy book for those who need to know the broad scope of the upcoming weather weeks or even months in advance.

Product reviews for listing 6899: Geronimo Stilton 62: Mouse Overboard -  Author: Geronimo Stilton

Product image for Geronimo Stilton 62: Mouse OverboardMy family and I were invited to Lisbon, Portugal, to retrace the journey of the great explorer Vasco da Gama. He was the first European to reach India by sea and was apparently an ancestor of the Stiltons! But once we got on the boat, I learned that someone was trying to sabotage the voyage. Could I figure out who.
