Good weather forecasting book for sailors?
Any recommendation of a good weather forecasting book for coastal sailors?
Something simple, not too complicated?

You might want to look at these two books...


The first book is about reading/interpreting weather charts and maps, etc. The other is more about predicting weather via what you can see, and instruments like barometers.

7tiger7, I have been having the most success with meteorology books I got at a local University bookstore. I found the University books were easier to digest than some because they walked you through the principles one by one and it actually made sense. I think it helps to know the 'why', at least it does for me. I don't have any titles handy because I am away from home at the moment.

If you are anywhere near Annapolis then SSCA is having a basic and advance weather class in October. I'd go but it's too expensive for me.
