Notice that the cloud cover over Africa and South America is correlated in a way that seems to be highlighting some kind of large-scale easterly wave propagation near the ITCZ? I do not think that the commentary in the video addresses this.

What other wave dynamics should be obvious to my eye, here? The wavenumber ~4 pattern near ±50° are Rossby waves, correct?

Anyone know of a video similar to this that has commentary on the larger-scale dynamics (waves, general circulation), rather than weather?
