I cannot figure out how to make a spiral texture, similar to a hurricane, in blender. I tried a wave texture, but I couldn't figure it out. I wish to achieve something like this, and was hoping perhaps you guys could figure it out. I just need a basic shape.

I cannot quite replicate a true wrap but it might be good enough at a distance. This material uses a Radial Texture to twist some noise textures around a coordinate.

polar texture spiral

Note that there is a hard edge where the UV twisting stops. I guess you could make a duplicate and offset it by 45 degrees?
