Researchers create virtual tornadoes to better understand how they form

TULSA, Okla. — Weather researchers are creating virtual tornadoes in “supercomputers.”

These virtual tornadoes are bringing new discoveries on how tornadoes form.

Researchers are discovering new unknowns in tornado science.

They say some tornadoes are forming from a cascade of little events, instead of one single cause.

This data could also give us new clues to make tornado warnings even better.
