So I have a vague idea about US tornado's and how hooks/bows and stuff form, with powerful thunderstorms associated.
There was a few tornado's in Ireland this year, and if I recall correctly storm ellen came with a tornado advisory which is the first I've ever seen from met eireann.
I was thinking that Atlantic storms seem to be quite different systems to Mid/Southern US states storms.
Ellen was unusually warm for a storm like this, which usually occur in Winter.
Is it the same type of tornado formation or are are there more things at work?
