If we could drop an F5 tornado in the middle of a hurricane, would that disrupt it enough to dissipate it?

Asked by Dutchess_III (40385points) September 6th, 2017

An little tornado, an F1, with windspeeds of 72 mph picks up where a catagory 5 hurricane leaves off.
An F5 can reach wind speeds of 318 mph.

It might just be absorbed by the hurricane and make it even stronger.

any tornado would be a little short lived joke to a hurricane In fact hurricanes can generate tornadoes round the clock and proceed undisturbed. The winds in tornadoes are faster but the storms are minuscule in size compared to hurricanes

That tornado would be like this kid

Hurricanes spawn tornados all the time.

Hurricanes generate tornadoes. So Drop it but the Hurricane will not be effected.

Maybe if you could drop one that rotated the opposite direction into the eye…

Yes. Tornadoes happen during hurricanes, but not in the eye…

I am curious what would happen if a strong, upward blast of air at the leading edge of a hurricane could redirect the winds upward, and if so, could that extinguish the strength of the storm?

Well, that kind of goes back to the Jelly’s question asking about dropping a nuclear bomb in it. If we could theoretically do that without the radioactive fall out (which would be spread much further than “normal”) would that be a blast enough to mess it up?

That question is what prompted this question, BTW. I forgot to give credit.
