Question 2: Where are there very few tornadoes? From what you have learned, why do you think this is?

Question 3: Describe how the locations of tornadoes changes throughout the year.

Question 4: Why do you think we see these changes?

Part A: Analyzing Dew-Point Index

1. Look at the map in Figure 1. This map shows dew-point temperatures in the United States on April 6, 2003.

2. Which part of LIMBS is the dew-point temperature

Part B: Analyzing Lifted Index

1. Which part of LIMBS is the lifted index?

2. List the states that include shading.

Part C: Analyzing Storm-Relative Helicity

1. Which part of LIMBS is the storm-relative helicity?

2. List the states that include shading.

Final Analysis

1. Are there any states where all three thermodynamic indices favor the formation of a tornado? If so, name them.

2. List all the states that have only two of the indices for formation of a tornado (and include which two criteria they have).

3. List all states that have only one index for tornado formation (and which criteria).

4. Imagine that a cold front moved across the SE U.S. on April 6, 2003. Which part of LIMBS is a cold front?

5. Would this front increase or decrease the chances of tornado formation? Explain.

6. On Figure 4, sketch with concentric circles where you think there is a (a) high, (b) medium, and (c) low chance of severe weather and tornadoes on this day.

Questions 5: How well were you able to predict severe weather using the data in the activity? How close were you to identifying the areas that actually had severe weather?
