And mine. Andrew, you should contact Wiley's the publishers. I have had at least one copy go AWOL in the post in the past, but the publishers have always sent another one very quickly.

Kind regards

My copy of Weather arrived on the 14th. I can now see the problem with the minimaps.

My June copy eventually arrived on the 12th July and the July copy on the 14th, so I am now up to date.

Yes the weather log mini maps in the July issue are hard to decipher.

... this was the reply (below) I received today after pointing out what, to me, was a significant problem

Martin.

" Thank you for your comments regarding the charts used in the weather log.
These charts are provided by the Met Office, who have recently updated the system that is used to create the images. Due to the timing of the switch to the new system they were not able to provide the same format for the whole May, and so two different types of chart had to be used. The most consistent form of charts for the month as a whole was the black and white version, and so we decided it would be best to use these instead of colour version that is usually used.
Now that the new system is in place the Met Office are able to provide a consistent set of files for the charts, and we will be reverting to using a colour version. The image quality should also be as good as (if not better than) that of the old form of charts used in the March weather log.
Unfortunately due to the constraints of space and large number of charts that need to be displayed there is a limit to the size that the charts can be printed at. However, with the improved quality of the charts from the new system going forward, I hope that you will find the images of sufficient clarity. "
