Wind Field of a Nonmesocyclone Anticyclonic Tornado Crossing the Hong Kong International Airport

Figure 5

Time-to-distance conversion of tornado-relative winds as observed at surface station R1C, resulting in a transect through the core flow region of the tornado. The black dot indicates location of the tornado center and the circle denotes the radius of maximum winds. Time along the wind-barb path advances from 0955:05 (lower right) to 0955:45 (upper left) at one-second intervals. Select times are shown in purple. The short (long) wind barb represents 2.5 m  s−1 (5 m s−1).
