How to use "Simoon" in context?

Simoon (Arabic سيمون) is a rare and intense type of thunderstorm that forms in the Arabian Peninsula, Oman, Pakistan, and parts of India. When a warm, moist front approaches the cooler altitude of the Earth's atmosphere, the ground cools quickly, causing an inversion layer to form. This layer of the atmosphere traps more moisture in the air and allows for the development of thunderstorms.
