(a) LIDAR Doppler velocity at 0946:19, showing four weak circulations behind the leading edge of the gust front (not shown). Circulation number 3 becomes the tornado documented in this paper, while the other circulations do not persist. (b) LIDAR Doppler velocity at 0956:06, which is the closest scan to the time when the surface station was impacted by the tornado. Colors represent Doppler velocity with scale along the bottom in m  .
