You don't have to be a weather geek to see the beauty in this video from NOAA.
The 2012 Atlantic Hurricane Season included 19 named storms, and you can see them all in a time-lapse video of satellite imagery spanning the whole season -- and then some.
Though the official hurricane season lasts from June 1 to November 30, the 2012 season started off early with Alberto and Beryl appearing in May. The time-lapse video, which was released last year, has been updated to include those early storms.
Of course, Bay Area residents probably remember Isaac the best, while millions of people will never forget Sandy, which caused destruction throughout the Northeast.
Hurricanes aside, another striking feature for Floridians is the obvious afternoon flare-ups of summertime storms. They pop up over the peninsula and then vanish every few seconds as the satellite time-lapse rolls on.
