Abstract

Tornadic storms passed between the two NSSL Doppler radars on 20 April and 8 June, 1974. Both radars simultaneously collected Dopplar data throughout these storms. From the derived velocity fields, vorticity and divergence calculations were made. Strongest convergence is noted in the weak echo region and between opposing vorticity centers.
