1. Introduction North and South America are home to two of the world’s largest mountain ranges: the Rocky and Andes Mountains. The elevation of these barriers, north–south orientation, and their position on the western side of the continents substantially influence the weather downstream because they modify midlatitude westerly and other associated flows. Interestingly, the regions east of the mountainous terrain in both continents are global hot spots for deep and organized convection, owing

 al. (2021) showed that models with parameterized convection have persistent biases in midlevel moisture in both North and South America, which also degrade precipitation forecasts. Therefore, considering that the heavy precipitating systems influenced by the SDC are not well represented ( Ward et al. 2011 ), it is troublesome to achieve a good water resources management in the province of Córdoba. The Remote sensing of Electrification, Lightning, And Mesoscale/microscale Processes with Adaptive
