Alright I think I get it now, thing is I dont think we have had a strong daytime storm here in a long time...they always seem to hit us late at night.
That's weird, given that the daytime heating is usually the biggest catalyst and there are more daytime tornadoes than night-time.
I had a guy debate me on that, saying more people get killed at night in tornadoes.
This is true. That's because it's harder for the spotters to see a tornado at night; but can also be difficult during the day if you have an entirely rain-wrapped funnel.
Doesn't change the fact that daytime tornadoes are more frequent though.
That's true. Very true actually. However, if LLJ's are strong enough ahead of potently moving frontal boundary, mesocyclone development can definitely occur at night (as was the case last night across northern AR into western KY).
What's worse is in the case that a funnel is rain-wrapped, then you know that anybody who is in the path of the storm is screwed indefinitely.
(If I'm getting the math right).
