14 Years of US Weather in 33 Minutes, Set to Beethoven

There’s con­den­sa­tion in the air. You can feel it.

This video packs 14 years of Unit­ed States weath­er (1997 — 2011) into 33 min­utes, pre­sent­ing a total of 120,900 indi­vid­ual frames, each spaced one hour apart. And they’re all set to Beethoven’s Piano Con­cer­to No. 5 in E flat Major. If you want to get right to the dra­ma, we rec­om­mend jump­ing to the cli­mac­tic 27th minute. H/T Devour.
