What makes a twister twist? Where does acid rain come from? Is it true that snow is sometimes green? Or even red? Can it really rain cats and dogs . . . and frogs?

It's an action-packed tour of the world's strangest weather events--with lots of easy-to-do activities that let you experience the secrets of nature up close. Plus dozens of fascinating sidebars, fun facts, and illustrations bring the world's wonders to vivid life. What's the weather? It's awesome!
