For the past few months, the staff at Astronomy has been working on a special publication titled Extreme Weather. On newsstands now, the magazine covers the science of weather and its effects. Extreme Weather features articles on violent weather, weather science, weather imaging, and more for both casual observers and serious enthusiasts.

We have received some excellent feedback from weather experts around the country who have previewed the magazine.

Jeff Masters from Weather Underground, Inc., one of the most popular weather web sites in the world, reviewed Extreme Weather in his blog and writes that the magazine includes “awesome shots of tornadoes, lightning, floods, supercells, hail, hurricane winds, and waterspouts. The first article of the magazine features the equally fantastic photos of storm chaser Warren Faidley, who also happens to be the best writer among professional storm chasers, in my opinion.”

Masters is referring to the article “Chasing the perfect storm,” which follows Faidley on his quest for the most dangerous photo opportunity. Read all of Masters’ blog here.

Mike Buresh, meteorologist for CBS 47 and Fox 30 in Jacksonville, Florida, says: “The old saying 'a picture is worth a thousand words' is put to good use in Extreme Weather. It is a publication that will interest a wide range of 'weather-holics' ranging from the novice to the professional.” Buresh also blogged about the new publication. Read it here.

Lee Tolliver writes: "Being the Outdoor Editor at The Virginian-Pilot, I always have found it useful to know as much about the weather as possible. I took two classes in college and was really bitten by the weather bug. Our company owns the Weather Channel, so getting people to teach me has been easy. I do everything I can to learn more. So I was ecstatic when I got my copy of Extreme Weather. The photos and information in it are incredible. I really find it hard to put the magazine down."
