How Does Tornadoes Form?

Answer

Several conditions are required for a tornado to form. Among them, lots of low-level moisture, a trigger (such as a cold front), which causes the air to rise and become saturated. Once this happens, the air continues to rise and forms the thunderstorm clouds that are usually associated with tornado activity. They usually form in areas where the wind has a clock-wise rotation.You can find more information on this subject at this link.
