I learned more about the "death outflow." This stuff is so interesting.

It is surface outflow. So that means there is divergence at the surface, not convergence, like there should be, and so convection will collapse. And this part I am not so clear about but it is possibly caused by dry air being pulled in probably at the mid-level.
