Looking for resources on micro and mesoscale meteorology

My wife got me hang gliding lessons for Christmas, which I'm going to take this summer. In preparation I'd like to learn what I can about atmospheric behavior on scales of a few meters to a few kilometers. I've found small isolated sources with tidbits of information, but nothing with any real depth or breadth.

Any suggestions?

After looking over that course for just a couple of minutes, my first impression is that's exactly what I was looking for. :)
Thanks!

Understanding the Sky by Dennis Pagen is aimed at glider and other sport pilots. It deals almost exclusively with small-scale micrometeorological phenomena and their impact on flight. Very useful book and probably the best treatment of the subject from an applied point of view.
