A. the flowing southward of moist tropical air

C. the southward flowing of moist tropical air
D. the southward flowing of moist tropical air

The answer is B.
Because only this option is correctly parallel with the earlier part of the sentence.

"lower level moist, maritime air flowing onshore from the south-east"
And
"B. moist tropical air flowing southward"

E. Can not be the answer because it uses "flows", whereas the non-underlined part of the sentence uses verb+ing form.


Hope I am correct.
