    Hi Nuren and welcome to Net-Weather.

    The Triple point is the Intersection point between 2 Boundaries, it could be dryline, outflow boundary, Cold Front etc. It is often a focus point for Severe Thunderstorm developments. The triple point may also refer to a point on the gust front of a Supercell Thunderstorm, where the warm moist inflow, the rain cooled outflow from the (FFD) Forward Flank Downdraught and the (RFD) Rear Flank Downdraught all intersect, this part of the Storm is a favoured part for Tornadogenesis or re-developements of Cyclic Tornadoes. Plain and simple it is a point where certain factors all intersect, more commonly found in the US During Spring/Summer.

    Regards
