How Does a Tornado Form?

Answer

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.

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.
