Arab Weather - The outputs of satellite images of the Air Operations Department of the Arab Regional Weather Center since this morning showed the formation of many cumulus thunderclouds in the central and southern waters of the Arabian Gulf, with monitoring of intensity in lightning flashes and a vertical extension of cumulus clouds towards the upper layers of the atmosphere.
This type of cumulonimbus clouds is usually associated with activity at the speed of surface winds, which naturally cause disturbances in sea waves, and is reflected directly in small boats and marine navigation operations within the Arabian Gulf.
Scientifically, the reason behind the formation of cumulus clouds over the waters of the Arabian Gulf is due to the flow of cold winds in the various layers of the atmosphere, including the layers near the surface of the earth, towards the very warm waters of the Gulf, which have a temperature of 23 degrees Celsius.
Because of the temperature difference between the waters of the Arabian Gulf and the layers of the atmosphere, this caused the emergence of atmospheric disturbances resulting from the process of lifting warm, moist air towards the upper layers of the atmosphere and its encounter with cold winds at the top, which resulted in the formation of cumulus thunderclouds in the waters of the Arabian Gulf.
