Ocean Surface Temperature Limit-Part 2

-

The surface temperature in the Persian Gulf has been observed to reach 307K in August but examining the atmospheric profile shows the mid-level moisture content is too low to create the LFC needed before deep convection can develop. The Persian Gulf experiences high rates of evaporation but the prevailing dry north-westerly winds transport the high level moisture laterally to the Arabian Sea. Cloudbursts are rare events in the Persian Gulf.
