Essential Guide to the Weather with the Telegraph

Our team of regional PWS Advisors work with the emergency planning community

We have teamed up with the Telegraph to produce two stunning, 40-page colour guides to the weather, free inside The Telegraph on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 March 2013.

Introduced by ITV's Met Office weather presenter Siân Lloyd, the two 40-page, colourful guides to cloudspotting, weather forecasting and extreme weather, are free inside The Telegraph.

The weather affects us all, from the simple act of raising an umbrella to an aeroplane changing course to avoid a thunderstorm. We have teamed up with the Telegraph to provide an exclusive guide to weather - where, how and why it occurs.

On Saturday the 'Essential Guide to the Weather' will give you an insight into the fundamentals of weather, exploring how weather works and why it happens in the first place. You can also learn how to identify different cloud types with a colourful cloudspotting guide and gain a useful insight into how to use them to predict the weather.

Sunday's 'Essential Guide to the Weather' will then take a look at the science behind forecasting and the powerful forces which cause extreme weather, from spectacular lightning displays to powerful tropical cyclones. It will also take a look at the technological advancements that deliver the accurate weather forecasts we see every day as well as exploring the UK's own record-breaking weather.
