The UVS research predicates a tornado is formed with an atmospheric free vortex manifested by an intensified jet stream of its vortical system.

The grounding for its epistemic theories of truth: The underlying vortical structure and mechanism of a tornado as explicated with its hypothetical construct based on the UVS model, elucidated its delusional observations that render its misconceptions, mysteries, and anomalies. Thus, its cognitive paradox was simply dispersed, and all the related natural phenomena were then qualitatively analysed in the conceptual framework of UVS by inductive reasoning for explicating with their empirical evidence to predicate by abductive reasoning.
See the UVS topics on "The UVS' philosophy of science" and "Overviews of the UVS research" that elaborate on the methodology for the evaluations of natural phenomena, and "Unisonal vortex mechanism" that elaborates on the unisonal vortical chain reaction.
When an intensified subtropical jet stream of its polar vortex and another intensified jet stream of the satellite polar vortex interacts on a low altitude troposphere of lower cloud level in winter rushing down into warmer valley with freezing air, it could also spawn a chain of satellite vortices in the lower cloud level to render the phenomenon of a tornado cluster.
An intensified subtropical jet stream of the polar vortex rendered by a torque-induced precession from the Solar System alignment effect, can generate a chain of atmospheric vortices that are subjected to localized factors, such as the dragging effects of landmass[uvs] in the Tornado Alley rendered by the valley between Rocky Mountains and Appalachian Mountains.
The altitude of atmosphere is directly affected by Solar System alignment with tidal effect. When aligned Sun, Moon and other planets has a strong focused gravitational effect on North Indian Ocean side during winter of northern hemisphere, the atmospheres on top of United States would have a very low altitude cause by tidal force[w]. In winter nights, the mainland of United States within latitude of 30°N and 40°N is right on plane of the ecliptic[w]; this could subject the region to the maximum effects of external torque-induced precession.
See the UVS topic on "The Great White Spot on Saturn" that elaborates on how a chain of satellite free vortex cluster were periodically observed to have manifested by the axial-tilt of Saturn with its revolving precession effect.From the UVS perspective, the Earth on its rotating axis would aid to drive a cyclonic vortex that spins in the same direction of its differential force, and this works against an anti-cyclonic vortex; cyclonic tornadoes therefore would occur more often than anti-cyclonic tornado.
Based on unisonal vortex mechanism[uvs], the strength and wind speed of an atmospheric vortex is at its maximum at the bottom portion of a nested vortex column. And tornado has a distinct feature of an upward vortical air stream that could levitate debris at the bottom of its nested vortex column in its vortical air boundary.
This vortical air boundary is a vortrex[uvs] formed by a bounced back reaction of its vertical downdraft[w], which vortically pushes in from the higher up atmospheric surface into the vortex column. Coupled with its spiraling horizontal force, the resultant reaction is a powerful upward spiraling jet of air stream that could lift roof top of a family house or toss a small vehicle into mid air in a projectile manner across a football stadium.
The UVS research predicates the upward spiraling jet of air stream of a tornado is formed by vortical reactions of a clear air vortex with a vortical momentum that has bounced off the ground.
Though relatively short lived at the vertex and very small in size as compared to a hurricane, with focused energy discharging in a small diameter vortex eye, the damaging force a tornado can exert directly on an obstacle with its high speed upward spiraling jet of air stream can be even more powerful than a hurricane, albeit with a much smaller capacity affecting a smaller region.
From the UVS perspective, the mechanism of an underlying atmospheric vortrex that could lift debris in its vortical boundary, or forms the water column in a waterspout, is similar to how a dust devil[uvs] is being impelled by its nested clear air vortex to lift up charged dust particles in a nested atmospheric layer, which tightly warps around the nested vortex column.
From the UVS perspective, waterspout is a troposphere vortex (i.e. nested atmospheric vortex formed in troposphere with several atmospheric layers) landed on water. Its upward spiraling jet of air stream in the nested vortrex that tightly wraps around its nested vortical column, could vortically push water up into its outer nested vortical column to form as a skin of water column.
See the UVS topic on "The vortices of Jupiter" that illustrates on how storms on the atmospheric layers of Jupiter, are being driven by its nested polar vortex pair, the underlying mechanism is similar to the mechanism that forms and drives tornadoes to mangiest on Earth.
See the digital copy of a French book "Toujours les tourbillons" authored by Charles Louis Weyher in 1911. Translated as "Always the whirlwinds", it illustrated and described with intricate details for the experiments on the mechanism that emulate atmospheric vortex and underwater vortex formations.

Disclaimers: The treatise of Universal Vortical Singularity (UVS) in its epistemological paradigm shift, is fundamentally unconventional. Its hypotheses grounded on a generally unheard-of UVS model, bound to have shortcomings, such as loose ends, errors, and omissions errors. Many details and assumptions in its propositions have yet to be further researched, probed, evaluated, validated, or verified. Its implicit explanations are for casual understanding of the UVS topics presented in the UVS worldview, so if any term or statement is offensive in any manner from whatsoever perspectives, is most regretted. Links to other sites do not imply endorsement of their contents; apply appropriate discretion whenever necessary. Also, the content of the UVS topics, from time to time could be arbitrarily modified without any notice.
Viewing tips: Despite the presentations of the UVS web pages has went through much accommodation for their viewings on smart phones, they are still not entirely friendly to these mobile devices. For the best experiences, use a MS Windows based PC or computer system with Java enabled browser for running its interactive applets. (Such as Java Applet of Moiré pattern, JPL Small-Body Database Browser, and Planet Finder.)
