Tornadoes come in different shapes, and the shape changes during the life of the tornado. Some tornadoes are like thin tubes or ropes, some look like large wedges. If it is wrapped in rain, or there isn't enough light, it can be hard to see a tornado. Sometimes clouds may look like a tornado but aren't, so looking for other clues like rotation is important.
