Northfield’s ’06 hailstorm featured in ‘Extreme Weather’ book

Cover: Extreme WeatherNorthfield hailstorm from book, Extreme Weather

Northfield’s Aug. 2006 hailstorm (and four of my photos — see my one-year hailstorm anniversary blog post) gets two full pages in a chapter on hail in consulting meteorologist Michael Mogil’s new book, Extreme Weather: Understanding the Science of Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Floods, Heat Waves, Snow Storms, Global Warming and Other Atmospheric Disturbances.

“… the book addresses many facets of our world’s current spate of wild weather, but with new perspectives and stunning photography. Global warming/ climate change issues are linked to understanding general weather processes.”

Mogil’s How the Weather Works web site has lots more info about weather and his company’s services.

Update 11/27/10: Mike Mogil paid a visit to Northfield yesterday and did a little informal book-signing at the GBM.

    The author of this book, consulting meteorologist Michael Mogil, is visiting me at my corner office at the GBM tomorrow morning, 8 am. If you have a weather-related question, stop by and maybe he’ll be able to answer it.
