As the writer Peter Moore points out, we’re never far from a weather forecast. It’s become a quotidian component of modern life. But were it not for a host of daring experiments in the 19th century, we might not know that Wednesday is sunny with a chance of t-storms. In a new book, Moore tells the stories of the sailors, artists, astronomers, adventurers, and others who laid the foundations of today’s meteorological sciences. He joins us Thursday to explore the experiments that helped us divine the weather.
