It is 100°F where I live. If I bring out a cooler of dry ice and dump it on the ground will a tornado form?

    No. It takes massive amounts of hot and cold air and a high energy low pressure storm front to form a tornado. Your dry ice won’t even be enough to form a dust devil. 

     A huge temperature change on its own does not form a tornado. Spearfish, South Dakota holds the world record for the fastest recorded temperature change. On January 22, 1943, at about 7:30 a.m. MST, the temperature in Spearfish was −4°F (−20°C). The Chinook wind picked up speed rapidly, and two minutes later (7:32 a.m.) the temperature was +45 °F (+7 °C) above zero. No tornadoes.

    In your imagination it might. A cold shower is more effective in relieving yourself of feeling hot.
