Seeing a spiral like this will make you want to run for shelter and batten down the hatches! Cyclones are winds rotating inwards to an area of low barometric pressure. They can also be known as hurricanes, tropical storms, tornadoes, typhoons, etc. As the names suggest they are responsible for stormy, and often destructive weather.
I have always had a fascination for weather that spins, I think it goes right back to when I first saw The Wizard of Oz as a child, when I thought it magical that a tornado could come along, pick you up in your house and whisk you off into a fantasy land. As an adult I obviously realise just how destructive tornadoes are but they are still fascinating phenomenons of nature.
Luckily there are no swirls like this today. The sun is shining, the sky is blue, and there isn’t a cloud in sight. Mind you it is only 7:15 am so a lot can change in a few hours, hopefully not though.
Happy Sunday everyone – hope you have a great week to come.
Also happy mother’s day to all you lovely mummies out there!
