What part of a tornado has the fastest winds?
It depends on the tornado.
For most tornadoes the fastest winds occur at the edge of the core.
For other tornadoes, especially large and/or strong ones the strongest winds occur in the suction vorticies, which are like mini tornadoes moving within the main circulation of a tornado. Tornadoes with this feature are called multiple vortex or multivortex tornadoes.
It depends on the tornado. If it is a single vortex tornado the winds near at the edge of the core will be the fastest. However, many of the strongest tornadoes are multivortex, meaning that they have smaller vorticies (almost like mini tornadoes) inside the main vortex. In a multivortex tornado the fastest winds are within these subvortices.
The largest tornado on record was the Hallam, Nebraska tornado of May 22, 2004 at 2.5 miles wide. The tornado with the fastest measured winds was the Moore, Oklahoma tornado of May 3, 1999 with winds of 302 mph. However since most tornadoes do not have their winds measured it is very likely that some other tornadoes had faster winds. The tornado with the fastest forward speed was the Tri-State tornado of March 18, 1925…
The fastest winds measured in a tornado were 302 mph in a tornado that struck the Oklahoma City area on May 3, 1999. However, other tornadoes may have had faster winds that were not measured, as it is rare to get an actual wind measurement from a tornado. The fastest known traveling speed of a tornado was 73 mph in the Tr-State tornado of March 18, 1925.
It depends on the cyclone, and the tornado. In some cases cyclone winds and tornado winds fall into the same range. However, tornado winds are generally stronger. By definition, a tornado must produce winds strong enough to cause damage; the same is not true of a cyclone. The very strongest tornadoes produce winds in excess of 300 mph, the fastest winds on earth.
Tornado winds rotate depending on the intensity of the Tornado. The fastest winds are around 261-318 mph (F5 tornado). This has been adjusted to just over 200 mph on the more accurate Enhanced Fujita scale, though winds over 300 mph can still occur. The weakest tornadoes have estimated winds of 65 mph.
