Heat waves roll over the oily ocean and enormous volumes of heated air, saturated with water vapour, rise and spiral slowly ​upwards, their place being taken by air moving in from the side. The motion is moderate ​but on a vast scale. The earth'​s rotation imparts a spin to the currents of rising air. When conditions are just right, we get a huge volume of hot moist air riaing and spiralling slowly. As this air reaches ​the higher levels of lower pressure, it expands and cools and the water vapour condenses back into water releasing its extra energy as heat, thereby re-warming the air. This causes the air to move faster, to spiral quicker and the whole process gathers momentum.
