horizontal flow convergence frequently aids convection initiation processes by forcing low-level air parcels upward, locally reducing CIN, deepening boundary layer moisture below cloud base, and providing a focal area for moist updrafts to detrain into the overlying free troposphere, reducing the negative entrainment effect ( Ziegler et al. 1997 ; Markowski and Richardson 2010 ; Moser and Lasher-Trapp 2017 ). Common mesoscale convergence features that trigger deep convection initiation (hereafter CI
