I am a meteorologist, and as the title says, I like to think that I am above all others.
I know how to spot tornadoes, and I am well aware that tornadoes can occur at any time.
But what about when they don’t?
This is a question I asked myself when I recently attended a meteorological conference in Cleveland.
The subject was tornadoes.
The speaker was Professor Mark Eakin, the president of the American Meteorological Society.
I was curious about what he had to say about tornado detection.
So I asked.
He responded that “the best way to tell whether a tornado is a normal or tornadic event is to look at the amount of time it takes to get a tornado.”
The question seemed straightforward, but I wanted to make sure that my question was clear.
So, I asked a second question, this time asking what the “best way to detect a tornado” was.
He replied: “You should always watch for tornadoes when they are not a normal event, or when they occur during a period of thunderstorms, especially during a winter.”
I am not a tornado expert, so I don’t know if this is correct or not.
So what does this mean?
Let’s consider a few examples.
Imagine you are sitting in your home in the middle of the night and a tornado pops out of nowhere.
It appears to be a thunderstorm and moves up the hill.
However, the tornado does not appear to be tornadic.
If you look closely, the storm looks like it’s going straight down the hill, with no break or sudden change in speed.
When you look up, the sky appears to look like a sheet of water.
That’s because the tornado is moving slowly, and its path is straight down.
I am going to take a moment to explain this.
When a tornado hits a surface, it usually takes a long time for the ground to slow down enough for the tornado to break up.
As the ground moves, it begins to “slip” up the tornado.
This process of “slipping” can happen at the surface of the ground and sometimes can happen even when there is no ground movement.
For example, imagine a tornado strikes the roof of your house, which is made up of concrete.
As it moves up and down, the concrete begins to sink in.
As more and more of the concrete hits the roof, the ground beneath it begins shaking.
If this shaking continues, the roof might begin to buckle and collapse.
However you look at it, this is the way a tornado should look, and the way it should be expected to look when tornadoes are not normal.
If a tornado does move quickly up and out of sight, it is a tornadic tornado.
If it moves slowly, it’s a normal tornado.
But if it moves at a very fast rate, it might be a tornadadic tornado, or the “ball of fire” of a tornado.
Now imagine you are at the top of the hill in your neighborhood and a second tornado is passing by.
It seems to be heading straight for you.
You don’t see it until you look out your window.
As you turn your head, you see the second tornado, but it is much faster.
You see it coming closer and closer, but then the second one appears to have broken through the clouds.
The tornado is now in your path.
Now, you might think, “Wait a minute.
It’s only a tornado!
I don-t know if it’s even a tornado!”
But if you keep your eyes on the ground, you can see that the second “tornado” is moving rapidly.
As its speed increases, it moves much faster, and then the third “tornadado” appears.
You can tell that it is moving quickly because you can feel its wind.
But you don’t have to be lightning fast to see that this tornado is going straight at you.
The ground beneath this tornado has already started to buckle, and it is now on the verge of toppling over.
As soon as the tornado reaches you, the whole roof begins to collapse.
The air below you has already been sucked into the air and has become saturated with water.
If the tornado continues to move at this speed, you will be able to see it at the horizon, but you won’t be able see it from the ground.
If there are any tornadoes in your area, there is a good chance that you will not be able get out of the way of the tornado before it reaches you.
For this reason, I always recommend that you always wear a headlamp in the morning and go outside when you are outside to see if there are tornadoes or if the tornado has just passed by.
Now that I’ve explained this, let’s take a look at what a tornado actually looks like.
The first thing to do is to determine if the ground underneath the tornado looks like a normal tornadic storm or a torn
