Large amounts of clouds multiplied at different altitudes, and heavy rains began in conjunction with the occurrence of strong thunderstorms, and rain clouds gradually spread from the Syrian coasts towards the interior of the country, and rain clouds extended to the Lebanese coasts and some inland areas.
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.
