New videos on El Niño, Hurricane Alex and how hurricanes form

A lot of good weather-related videos have shown up in my Facebook feed this week.  You might enjoy them too.

Marshall Shepherd of UGA pointed out a humorous short video called “Blame it on El Niño–Do you know what it really is?” here.

The New York Times posted a descriptive video about how hurricanes form here.

And finally, Discover magazine posted a water vapor loop of satellite images from the University of Wisconsin showing the development of Hurricane Alex in the eastern Atlantic Ocean this week here.

Now all you need is some popcorn and you are all set!
