I wonder how mountainous terrains interact with tornadogenesis, both against it and also in favor of it.Some tornadoes in Slovenia. According to the American Meteorological Society eight tornadoes were recorded in Slovenia between 1950 and 2015, though the actual number is likely higher.

May 11, 2014 (don't know if this one actually touched down, though a confirmed tornado hit Mahniči in the same year)
That’s at least a funnel cloud, but hard to deduce anything beyond that given the hilly terrain.Well… the more I refine the footage I recorded last Sunday, the more it impresses me. I am not discarding the possibility of this thing having actually made touch down.
What I still don’t understand is how it went from just some dark clouds, while I arrived home from a walk (it didn’t have any impressive features), to 15 minutes later, an impressive mesocyclone. I think the wind shear must have been excessively high, since most of the day we had mild temperatures, not at any moment surpassing the 20°C (about 68°F), with very little sunshine.
