On 24 May 2011, a devastating EF5 tornado carved a path of destruction through El Reno, Oklahoma. Using the environment preceding the real event as initial conditions, the formation of a powerful tornado within a supercell thunderstorm was simulated on a Blue Waters supercomputer. The simulated tornado exhibited winds exceeding 500 km/h and pressure drops of more than 200 hPa. VAPOR visualization software was used to produce the image in which the cloud field and surface pressure trace are shown. Cycloidal patterns in the surface pressure field (in dark blue) resemble the damage swaths often observed following the passage of some of the strongest tornadoes. These patterns are caused by the powerful winds of individual suction vortices that comprise the multiple-vortex tornado. View this paper.
