such as the intertropical convergence zone, the South Atlantic Convergence Zone, or the south Pacific convergence Zone. These regions shift seasonally, giving rise to the monsoons. The tropics are also home to tropical storms and hurricanes in regions of high surface temperatures. Weather in cool ocean upwelling regions frequently consists of stratus cloud decks and light precipitation. 2.List and describe some of the conditions that are favorable to hurricane development. What atmospheric conditions inhibit hurricane formation and growth?Ocean temp. >26.5 °C to a depth of at least 50 mDecreasing atmospheric temperature with heightHigh humidity in the lower-to-mid troposphereLow wind shearAt least 500km off the equatorA pre-existing disturbance like a tropical depression
