I'm fairly new to the meteorology scene, as far as academics go, though I've been interested in it for several years. My question, though, is: Is it possible to have a tornado on a weak CAPE day? On April 16 or 17, 2005, Albuquerque, NM had its first tornado in 20 years, an actual, bona fide tornado that touched down. But checking on the Skew-t for that day, the CAPE is minuscule: at max 200 J/kg. It might be me; I might have read the graph wrong, but in the case that I'm not, is there an explanation for this?
