Modulated by global-, continental-, regional-, and local-scale processes, convective precipitation
in coastal tropical regions is paramount in maintaining the ecological balance and socioeconomic health within them.
This can be explained by the maximum of convective precipitation
corresponding to the daily maximum of air temperature, which is most typical for the summer season.
The precipitation increase for April-September found in this study is also consistent with the expected increase in conditions that support summertime convective precipitation
(namely humidity and CAPE (convective available potential energy), as seen in the study by Trapp et al.
The NESDIS operational convective precipitation
Precipitation from clouds formed by this process is called convective precipitation
This case focused on squall lines observed during the Convective Precipitation
Experiment (COPE) conducted over the southwest of England during the summer of 2013.
Current global climate models cannot explicitly resolve many hydrologically important processes including orographic or convective precipitation
and most land surface feedbacks.
Haerter, 2013: Strong increase in convective precipitation
in response to higher temperatures.
The extreme-rainproducing MCS consisted of numerous well-defined, southwest-northeast-oriented, band-shaped convective precipitation
regions with reflectivity >35 dBZ (simply referred to herein as rainbands) during its life-span (Figs.
A robust finding is an improvement representation of the diurnal cycle of convective precipitation
that was shown for many regions and in multiple models.
Large parts of the central Great Plains witness a nocturnal maximum in the frequency of thunder storms and convective precipitation
in summer (Kincer 1916; Wallace 1975; Maddox 1980; Heideman and Fritsch 1988; Colman 1990).
From an observational perspective, it is important to accurately detect, monitor, and estimate convective precipitation
over continental-scale domains using satellite- and/or ground-based remote sensing.
