How Are Tornado's Made?

Steps 1,2,3,4,5,6,

‘’Step 1: Like all winds and storms, tornadoes begin when the sun heats up the surface of the land. As the warm, less heavy air begins to rise, it meets the colder, heavier air above it. Note that wind shears make it even easier to set them off. A wind shear is when two winds at different levels and speeds above the ground blow together in a location.

tornado Step 2: The faster moving air begins to spin and roll over the slower wind. As it rolls on, it gathers pace and grow in size.

tornado Step 3: At this stage, it is an invisible, horizontal wind spinning and rolling like a cylinder. As the winds continue to build up, stronger and more powerful warm air forces the spinning winds vertically upward, causing an updraft.

tornado Step 4: With more warm air rising, the spinning air encounters more updraft. The winds spin faster, vertically upwards, and gains more momentum.

tornado Step 5: At this stage, the spinning winds, creates a vortex and the the wind has enough energy to fuel itself.

tornado Step 6: The tornado is fully formed now and moving in the direction of the thunderstorm winds. When the pointed part of the tornado touched the ground from the cloud, it is often referred to as 'touch down' As it moves it rips off things along its patch.’’

The tornado forms when air starts spinning close to the ground over time it gets faster at this point the air is invisible. Next more air comes and pushes it up and it spins faster and then it filly formed. and will start destroing anythingg in its path.


I chose to research this because i was interested in how they are formed. I did learn that one way tornado form is by a 6 step process the reason i was so interested in how tornado forming was because we are in a tornado season and that got me interested in tornado's.

Hot and could air mixing

‘’How do tornadoes form? That is pretty easy to answer since there has been a large amount of study into the subject. They are usually the extreme result of a supercell thunderstorm. During the storm cold air and warm air combine in a set pattern: the cold air drops as the warm air rises. The warm air eventually twists into a spiral and forms the funnel cloud that we all associate with a tornado.’’

A tornado is formed when hot and cold air mix. the hot air goose to the top. And the cold air goose to the bottom.
