Do You Know How Dust Devils Form?

Dust devils (small dust twister/tornado) form when a patch of hot air around the surface move from a lower position to a higher one quickly through cooler air above it, forming an updraft. If that situation are just right, the updraft may begin to move in a circular direction. The secondary flow in the dust devil results the other hot air to speed up horizontally inward to the down surface of the newly forming vortex.
