How Does a Tornado Form?


When warm air goes up at a rapid pace and cool air remains at the earth's surface, a tornado can form depending on winds coming from two different directions. Tornadoes start in the air and are most dangerous when the touch ground. Tornadoes are common in Kansas and Nebraska, which are a part of the Tornado Alley.
Q&A Related to "How Does a Tornado Form"
The formation of tornadoes is complicated. First, a condition called. wind shear. in which the speed or direction of the wind changes with altitude. If the shear is strong enough
One of the easiest projects that children can do to explore how tornadoes are formed is a simple diagram. Have the students make a diagram out of some construction paper or cardboard
Warm moist air shoots upward, meeting colder, dryer air, making for a strong updraft!!
Warm air goes up at a rapid pace and while the cold air is at the Earth's surface. When winds from two different direction collide they start to spin. The updrafts makes the funnel
1 Additional Answer Answer for: how does a tornado form
Clouds form when water vapor condenses in the air. This releases heat, which increases the updraft temperature and the kinetic energy of air movement. In supercell thunderstorms, updrafts are strong and may create a vortex of air that may form a tornado.
Most scientists consider this to be a simplified and incomplete explanation. The finer details of tornado formation and dissipation are still unknown.
