Hey Tyler, I saw there was a confirmed tornado in of all places, Merced, CA yesterday. They had some video of it on The Weather Cannel and it was quite impressive, for California. They have several tornados every winter in the Central Valley. They explained it as cool Pacific storms pushing up and over the Coastal Range, the moist air somewhat heating as it compresses into the valley and then rising quickly as it's pushed up againts and meets the cold downslope winds draining off the Sierra Nevada. Somewhat different setup ftrom the Great Plains storms, but I guess if the right conditions are met, tonados can happen anywhere. i just thouhgt it was interesting!
