From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A skipping tornado is a vaguely defined term which refers to a tornado which has a discontinuous damage path. This may be due to several factors:

  1. The tornado actually lifting from the surface (which technically makes the two damage paths separate tornadoes)
  2. The tornado passing over a portion of land where there are no structures or vegetation capable of showing damage
  3. The tornado temporarily weakening so that the winds are below the damage threshold of the structures or vegetation being affected.
