The scientific reason behind the "summer" rainstorm on Syria and Lebanon

The reason behind the formation of unstable weather conditions that can be classified as strong is due to the rush of a cold air mass in the upper layers of the atmosphere through the Turkish lands towards Syria and Lebanon, coinciding with the presence of warmer air currents in the lower layers of the atmosphere, with the presence of quantities of moisture in the layers of the atmosphere Especially constructivism (medium and high).

The strength of the case was reinforced by the presence of a shallow depression near Syria and Lebanon that contributed to facilitating the process of raising the warm air upwards, which collided with the cold air mass, causing the formation of thick cumulus clouds, and as a result of the thermal differences, thunderstorms were formed that can be described as severe.
