Trying to read a netCDF file from NOAA

I have been trying to read this netCDF file from NOAA

https://www.spc.noaa.gov/wcm/climo/sigtorn.nc

The link to it is on the page Storm Prediction Center Maps, Graphics, and Data Page

The file is odd in that the coordinates are moderately useless, the actual lat long values for the data-points are stored in layers in the file itself. When I read the file in using qgis, or terra, I end up with a grid in Africa instead of the U.S.

I can't figure out how to build a proper grid using the lat/long layers.

ncfname <- paste0(path, "Tornado/sigtorn.nc")
ncin <- nc_open(ncfname)
print(ncin)
File /home/ajackson/Dropbox/Rprojects/TexasDioceseCreationCare/Data/Tornado/sigtorn.nc (NC_FORMAT_64BIT):

 3 variables (excluding dimension variables):
    double sigtorn[lats,lons]   
        _FillValue: NaN
    double lon[y,x]   
        _FillValue: NaN
    double lat[y,x]   
        _FillValue: NaN

 4 dimensions:
    lons  Size:45 (no dimvar)
    lats  Size:70 (no dimvar)
    x  Size:45 (no dimvar)
    y  Size:70 (no dimvar)

3 global attributes:

If that is not correct, you can set it to one of: sigtorn, lon, lat

Note that the lat/long for Florida is about 28, -80 and on the map it looks like 5, 55
