Short summary
This study shows the observational evidence of the role of humidity and associations from wind shear and aerosol concentrations on the evolution of deep convective clouds from shallow clouds. This study shows how humidity, wind shear, and aerosols influence a parcel's buoyancy before the clouds form.
