Did you know that a bolt of lightning can crack through the air at up to 136,000 miles per hour and reach temperatures hotter than the surface of the sun? Or that if all the ice in the Antarctic melted, the oceans would rise by about 220 feet?

Welcome to the amazing world of weather. From how weather happens to the most extreme weather in the world, it's all covered in this easy-to-use reference featuring all the major types of weather and what kinds of weather happen in particular places, from the desert to the tropics to the poles. The main content is highlighted with fun facts, Did You Know? details, and colorful photos and graphics.
