The influence of the eastward movement of the low-pressure plateau system on the convective clouds embedded in the SWV and the accompanied release of latent heat associated with cloud physics is important for the development and eastward shift of the SWV [22-25], which is particularly true for the development of positive vorticity in low-mid layers during the occurrence of heavy precipitation [26-28].
