Great topic MB. I don’t have any great recommendations though. I did a google search and found several that do sound good with nice titles. But I’m to skeptical to believe a book is going to help much. Even with the current technologies of radar, satellites with multiple sensor arrays, and instant communications meteorologists still have difficulty being accurate. I think historical data like you quoted will end up being the most trust worthy long term predictor.
Well here’s one that sounds good: http://www.weathergraphics.com/redbook/
