Tornadoes resulting from stretching of pre-existing vertical vorticity along convergence boundaries are not unusual in the warm season in the central plains of the United States. These tornadoes are associated mainly with nonmesocyclone processes (Brady and Szoke 1989), sometimes called "nonsupercell" (Wakimoto and Wilson 1989), with the tornadoes often called "landspouts" (Bluestein 1985). In some cases, tornadoes in such environments can reach significant intensity (defined here as F2 or… Expand
Non-mesocyclone Tornadoes
Knowledge of environments favorable to the formation of tornadoes, even weak ones, is important to the soaring weather forecaster. Accordingly, most violent tornadoes develop usually from supercellExpand

In Like a Lion : The March 8 th , 2000 Tornado
The tornado that struck Milwaukee, WI on March 8, 2000 was the earliest on record. Unlike most tornadoes, this particular tornado was not associated with a supercell or any form of a mesocyclone. TheExpand
