The "everything-you-wanted-to-know-about-the-weather-in-BC-but-didn't-know-who-(or-were-afraid to!) to-ask" book.

Don't like the weather? Move a little further inland, closer to the coast, or to the other side of the mountain. That's sound advice for any BC resident because the climate of the province is one of the most complex in Canada, often changing dramatically in the space of just a few kilometres. From the Sunshine Coast to Storm Mountain delves into the wonderful world of BC weather, which includes some of Canada's wettest, driest, hottest, and coldest conditions, and everything in between.

Author Keith Heidorn takes readers from dripping coastal rainforests to blazing deserts as he explains the fascinating science behind the BC climate and how it affects the nature of life in BC. Featuring up-to-date BC weather facts and statistics and over fifty maps, graphs, and diagrams, this book will delight anyone seeking easy-to-understand explanations of BC weather origins, influences, and phenomena. From the Sunshine Coast to Storm Mountain also tells the BC weather stories that made history and includes archival photographs of these significant events.
