Sunday Science Tidbit; Fujiwhara Effect & Fibonacci Spiral

In this week’s Sunday Science Tidbit we take a look at the weather in a different way… the Fujiwhara Effect and the Fibonacci Spiral. You’ve heard me talk time and time again that the atmosphere is like a fluid. There are different swirls, currents, interactions, and more. Let’s talk about two cool occurrences!

The Fujiwhara Effect describes the interaction between two vorticies, like hurricanes or mid latitude cyclones, that are close to each other in proximity, about 750 miles apart or less.…
