The findings of this paper reveal that the thunderstorm activities during spring in the warm region of Fukien are closely related to the existence of convergence belts associated with the southerly currents at 850 mb along the southeast coast of China. These activities are often oriented NE - SW or E - W. The convergence belts are an important dynamical feature responsible for the development and realization of thunderstorms within the region under consideration. In the present study, a classification of these convergence belts at 850 mb have been made and their displacements analyzed statistically.
