Ken Ring's 2012 Predict Weather Almanac for New Zealand
Farmers, fishermen, gardeners, skiers and anyone who works outdoors or just wants to know what the weather is going to do cannot be without Ken Ring's Predict Weather almanac for 2012. The 2012 almanac has the must-have features as the earlier volumes, with day-per-page forecasts including gardening advice and moon position information, as well as isobaric, rain potential and frost/snow maps, likely wind activity and, for the gardener, biodynamic planting guides. For the fisherman, there are daily best bite times and a rating from poor to excellent. There is also a ski season summary. Ken's sometimes controversial method of predicting weather by the cycles of the moon has attracted a wide following and has an amazingly high strike rate for reliability, as evidenced by the many endorsements from users. New feature for 2012! 70 graphs showing minimum temperatures mapped against forecast rain will help farmers and others more accurately predict severe weather.
Ken Ring, a former maths teacher, is the author of 16 books on weather and climate in New Zealand, including his annual Predict Weather almanacs, produced since 1999. He also runs the Predict Weather website, including a daily YouTube update, and consults to a wide range of local bodies, event organisers and corporates both in New Zealand, Australia and Ireland.
