Ian Currie in Print

Ian has written or co-authored many different books, the majority of which revolve around the subject we all know and cherish - the weather.

Frost, Freezes and Fairs: Chronicles of the Frozen Thames and Harsh Winters in Britain from 1000AD

Read about the Great Winter of 1683/84 when the Thames froze for 10 weeks and a great Frost Fair spread upstream from London Bridge. Even the King and his family attended and had their names printed on a quarto sheet. The brutal frost of 1739/40 when just after Christmas a violent gale with temperatures below 15F froze the river Thames in just 3 days. Why did the Thames fail to freeze at London Bridge in the winter of 1962/63 when temperatures averaged below freezing –December to February?

A yellow sky to end the day means wind and rain are on the way. When the wind backs and the glass falls be on your guard for rain and squalls. April has the face of a monk but claws of a cat.
