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.

From the best-selling "London in the Hurricane", an account of the 1987 storm which ravaged the capital, to "Red Sky At Night" - a compilation of weather sayings for all seasons, to county weather books detailing the history of weather in many of counties countrywide.

He has also been responsible for compiling the Michelin “I-Spy Weather” book as well as various publications such as the co-author for “Surrey In The Sixties” and “Surrey In The Seventies”.
  Most recently, his book “Frost Freezes and Fairs” captures the enthralling weather event of yesteryear - fairs on the frozen Thames and chronicles the harsh winters of Britain since 1000AD.

Ian is also responsible for Weathereye Magazine, a publication for all those interested in the weather. Unlike complex scientific journals, Weathereye is accessible to everyone for a small subscription fee. Each issue features fascinating weather related articles from around the world, as well as competitions, readers correspondence, historic pieces and spectacular photography.

London's Hurricane

An account of the night of the great storm, October 16 1987, the most destructive day the capital had known since the Blitz. The book is a photographic historical record of a meteorological event that closed the Stock Exchange, the Bank of England, City offices and schools.

Weather Lore– Fact or Fiction?

This book in colour with 32 illustrations/ pictures has evolved from a talk that I have given to many groups and societies. It is intended as a practical guide for outdoor people in making their own weather forecast. In many ways being weather wise is common sense and stems from good observation and recognition of the many clues around us. An almost infinite host of weather sayings have arisen about this subject. Just how reliable they are provides the basis of this book. ISBN 978-0-9531603-1-0 28 pages, Price £5.95.

Surrey in the Seventies

Surrey saw some spectacular sights as the Swinging Sixties gave way to the Seventies. Some town centres changed beyond recognition as demolition work made way for the new, and on the streets, out came some strange innovative fashions—hot pants, loons, flared trousers, ponchos and platform shoes. As youngsters danced to the Bay City Rollers, Slade and The Bee Gees, the local cinemas were emptying and closing down. The Seventies was also a decade of protests, strikes and other forms of industrial unrest, culminating in the “Winter of Discontent” in 1978-79. The following pages look again at the Seventies in Surrey and recapture those times of happiness and sorrow, Ford Capris, Austin Allegros and Morris Marinas. Over 200 photographs and 164 pages.
