What Causes a Vortex?

Answer

A vortex is defined as any spinning, flow of fluid or sometimes gas or air. It is caused by collision of a cold air front and a warm air front. In fluids, usually there are small movements in the water that get amplified by fluid dynamics and the rotation of exiting fluid rotates faster and faster.
