The complex life of a Tornado

“ A lethal yet intriguing phenomena …. “

The origin story...

The main factors that are needed for a tornado to form are

  • Crosswinds (preferably perpendicular in direction)
  • Significant temperature difference with increasing altitude
  • And finally, some luck! (Factors beyond simple science)

Why are tornadoes extremely difficult to predict?

Firstly weather prediction is made by numerical methods (statistical analysis)

  • The computer solves insanely complex equations with the given input data
  • Finally, it provides a refined output which is used for weather predictions
