Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


During which winter in history did Minnesotans experience the greatest amount of snow? What makes our state prone to tornadoes? What town claims the highest temperature ever recorded? Is it true that a Rochester boy rode the waves on his surfboard during a flash flood? How does one predict when the leaves will change colour? Were hunters really found frozen after the infamous Armistice Day Blizzard of 1940? How will ozone depletion affect our environment? From the dog days of summer and the first sweater weather of fall to 'cold enough for you?' winter mornings, Minnesotans love to talk about weather. Now climatologist and beloved Minnesota Public Radio commentator Mark Seeley provides all the answers in Minnesota Weather Almanac. Through charts, maps, and reader-friendly text, Seeley measures Minnesota's history in terms of high temperatures, significant rainfall, and devastating blizzards. He defines the character of our seasons and the climatology of our holidays. He shares stories from climate stations around the state and biographies of well-known figures in the history of Minnesota's weather. Whether planning your garden, dressing for a February day, settling a bet, or simply making small talk with a neighbour, you will find in this fascinating guide all the facts and figures, trials and tales you need.
