How do tornadoes die?

Tornadoes are able to die off when they move over colder ground or when the cumulonimbus clouds above them start to break up.

It is not completely understood as to how exactly tornadoes form, grow and die.

Tornado researchers are still trying to come up with a solution to this question, but for every piece that seems to fit they often uncover new pieces that need to be studied.
