Best Answer

Tornadoes are usually produced by extremely strong thunderstorms. A thunderstorm is created by rapidly rising air. This air causes a low pressure area on the ground. If the storm encounters strong wind shear it can start a counter-clockwise (in the northern hemisphere) vortex in this updraft called a mesocyclone. Further development can cause the mesocyclone to tighten and intensify into a tornado.
