On the average, this phenomenon occurs once a year and is expressed by stratified cloudiness that yield tens of mm of rainfall. When the jet joins the intertropical convergence (ITC) over West Africa, the Mediterranean Sea subtropical jet causes jet related rainfall. 2), brings rain over Libya and Egypt. When the trough 300 front reaches the eastern Mediterranean, convergence hPa occurs within the humidity strip, to the right side of the jet stream, and causes rainfall. Jet rainfall, has not yet been fully investigated.

In July (summer in the northern hemisphere), after the sun migrates north, the global pressure system wanders northwards by about 5°, and thus the 30° anticyclones push the 60° cyclones northward. Therefore, the 60° latitude depressions only marginally affect the summer Mediterranean climate regions, even those in the Southern Hemisphere, where January is midsummer and July is midwinter. This latitude depression effect is only relevant to the Western Mediterranean region, but does not apply to the Eastern Mediterranean.
