It's not an exact science, but tornadoes - a common weather phenomenon in the ArkLaTex - need certain ingredients to form.

These include an unstable atmosphere, moisture and heat.

Tornadoes can be hard to predict and can change direction at any moment.

Have a severe weather plan ready.

And always stay weather aware.
