Dr. Mel’s Connecticut Climate Book

Hot and humid, crisp and cold, or frigid and icy, the climate affects everything from what we wear to what we grow and what kind of work we do. In Dr. Mel's Connecticut Climate Book, beloved Connecticut meteorologist "Dr. Mel" Goldstein explains how the weather in the state changes from season to season, and how weather and climate work together. The book also delivers a fascinating account of Connecticut's weather history covering the past three centuries. Blizzards, cold waves, thunderstorms, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, and heat waves are included—documented with photographs, data plots and graphs, and meteorological explanation. This invaluable handbook showcases a variety of data and lore on Connecticut's weather systems. Dr. Mel's Connecticut Climate Book contains information about what to expect from each season, details and stories about Connecticut's most famous historical storms, archival photos, and charts of temperatures and weather patterns—all in a format that is fun to read.
