What are tornadoes? | Met Office News Blog
How will climate change affect tornadoes? - It is currently not possible to make a link between climate change and tornado activity. Climate change may have a number of effects on atmospheric conditions that may or may not favour tornado formation, the relatively short and unreliable record of tornado activity makes it difficult to determine a definite trend in this. Climate models are currently unable to resolve small-scale phenomena such as tornadoes, and no models exist which can use climate model data to predict future tornado activity.
