How does a tornado form?

What causes a tornado?
WHETHER YOU'VE SEEN ONE IN A MOVIE OR WITNESSED ONE IN REAL LIFE, TORNADOES ARE AMONG MOTHER NATURE'S MOST FASCINATING CREATIONS... AND DESTRUCTIVE FORCES.MOTHER NATURE'S FURY IS TRULY UNDENIABLE. LOOK NO FURTHER THAN THE TORNADO TO SEE HER MIGHT. THE STRONGEST WINDS ON EARTH COME FROM TORNADOES.SO JUST HOW DO THESE STORMS FORM? THE LARGE AND VIOLENT TORNADOES THAT WE ALL INVISION FROM THE MOVIES ORIGINATE IN SUPERCELL THUNDERSTORMS. THESE STORMS OFTEN FORM ALONG STRONG FRONTAL BOUNDARIES ACROSS THE CENTRAL US. COOL, DRY AIR ENCOUNTERS WARM, MOIST AIR, PROVIDING KEY COMPENENTS FOR STORM DEVELOPMENT. THOUGH THERE IS STILL MUCH TO BE DISCOVERED IN THE SCIENCE OF TORNADOES, IT IS BELIEVED THAT TORNADOES ORIGINATE IN THE UPDRAFT AREA OF A STRONG THUNDERSTORM. THIS COLUMN OF AIR THAT VIOLENTLY RISES IS A TORNADO IN THE MAKING. THIS TWISTING MOTION IS NECESSARY FOR TORNADO FORMATION AND IS CREATED FROM WIND SHEAR. STRONG WINDS FROM DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS ARE STACKED WITHIN THIS COLUMN OF AIR, CREATING A TORNADO. THIS VIOLENT FORMATION IS THE SOURCE OF THE STRONGEST WINDS EVER RECORDED ON THE PLANET, WITH WIND SPEEDS IN EXCESS OF 300 MILES PER HOUR.NO MATTER THE STRENGTH OR SIZE, TORNADOES REMAIN ONE OF MOTHER NATURE'S MOST RESPECTED FORCES.FROM VIGO COUNTY METEOROLOGIST ANNE ELISE PARKS..
