    The Earth is surrounded by an envelope of air known as the atmosphere. You can’t really see it or feel it. We probably take for granted that it is even there at all, but the pool of air above us is about 60 miles high and is always pushing down on us. This is where we get air pressure.

    Tornadoes can happen any time of the year, but they tend to be most common in April, May, and June. Spring is a time of year when the ingredients come together most often to form tornadoes.
