Some results of the first 10 cm dual-Doppler radar measurements in a tornadic storm are presented. A mesoscale cyclonic circulation confirms proposed single Doppler vortex signature and indicates that the curved reflectivity hook echo is around the periphery of the circulation. The interpolated tornado position is within the mesocyclone where high-variance Doppler velocity spectra suggest strong velocity gradients.
