With an upbeat tone and a spirited pace, Greg Tremblay narrates this scientific adventure, which takes an appreciative look at a much-maligned topic--the weather forecast. Inspired by the accuracy of the prognosticators of 2012's Superstorm Sandy, Andrew Blum explores what he calls the "weather machine"--an expansive infrastructure of technology that has moved weather forecasting from best guess to routine reliability through data collection and analysis. Blum's investigation blends research and interviews across international borders, and Tremblay does a terrific job navigating between scientific explanations and the voices of the scientists themselves. He is especially nimble with the pronunciation of myriad personal and place names, including the ubiquitous acronyms at the heart of any cooperative endeavor.
