Strong inbound winds next to Strong outbound winds also, next set of questions,
Name the damage indicator and the abbreviation for 14, 18, and 20 on the enhanced Fujita scale.

I was looking for hook echo, but your answer is just another way to phrase that. /skip

Uh ok so #14 is Automotive Service Building (ASB), then 18 is Mid-rise Building (MRB), then #20 is Institude Building (IB).

My question is: When a tornado is approaching from the southwest, what side is its strongest winds on? Options:

A) Northwest

B) Southeast

C) West

D) Northeast

ima guess Southeast bc the strongest winds in a tornado are on the right side
Ok my turn :D
1. A parcel of air at sea level has a temperature of 29°C and a dew point of 18°C. If the surrounding air is at a temperature of 26°C and the environmental lapse rate is 5°C, will the air parcel condense? Explain why. If the parcel does condense, calculate the altitude at which it does, and if it does not condense, calculate the altitude at which it begins to sink.
2. Why are mid latitude cyclones likely to form at the polar front?
