Making Value Of Your Education

If you haven't seen it, you should have a look at this brilliant post about creating weather for your world.  It also supports an argument I've made before - we have university educations, people.  Let's use them.

It is a pretty nice concise summary of weather. I also talk about this in Part I of building a Fantasy Sandbox.

I include some info on the monsoon effect which effect bodies of water that run largely north south.

That post and the one that inspired it were both awesome. For anyone who has 85 USD they want to blow, I'd also like to suggest this:

I loosely pattern the weather and such in my setting after the conditions in Southern Europe during the Last Glacial Maximum- and since it’s a zany post-apocalyptic setting I explain away the many, many liberties I take with "malfunctioning” weather control stations.
