Modern meteorologists put science to work to predict what the future holds. These predictions tell people how to dress for the day, or whether to pack an umbrella. But that's not all they do! They also track hurricanes, tornadoes, and major storms. They help people plan for disasters--before they strike! Learn about this fascinating STEM career with this high-interest book!
