Tornado Formation: must have vertical wind direction shear, so surface winds may be southerly and a km or so above it they may be northerly; must also have vertical wind speed shear as the wind speed increases rapidly w/ height; causes the air near the surface to rotate about a horizontal axis (vortex tubes: horizontal tubes of spinning air); they also form when a southerly low-level jet exists just above southerly surface winds

Welcome to Weather Wiz Kids®. I'm meteorologist Crystal Wicker. I designed this website especially for kids to allow them to learn more about the fascinating world of weather. It’s also a wonderful educational website for teachers and parents to give them the right tools to explain the different types of weather to children.
