Tornadoes form from super-cells (violent thunderstorms). Windsare moving in opposite directions,differences in speed, and direction.This creates a horizontal spinningaffect in the lower atmosphere. As it spins it keeps picking up speed and intensity which is fueling the storm. The dense air goes up and the humid air goes up. This strong downdraft pulls part of the area of rotation toward the ground. When it touches the ground, you got yourselfa tornado.
