  1. You know what? I noticed that the low pressure system that’s over the west US right now was rotating clockwise instead of counterclockwise and was wondering if any tornadoes would drop out of it. Amazing. I love feeling smart.

  2. Nothing rare about that tornado. It's spinning counterclockwise like the vast majority do. Velocity cuplet on dopplar radar confirmed this. You can see that the rotation in your video is counterclockwise.
