The convective atmospheric vortex model of Kuo (1966) is modifed and a time-dependent two-cell similarity solution is obtained. Predictions of flow fields and thermodynamic property distributions have been made and they compare favorably with available data measured from natural occurrences of tornadoes. The present solution predicts the dissipation of convective atmospheric vortices.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1978.tb00853.x
