Average values of moisture and stability for the lower troposphere are computed at three-hourly intervals. Comparison of the diurnal moisture and stability variation with the diurnal rainfall variation does not yield a satisfactory explanation of the latter. Cloud observations, however, suggest an explanation of the precipitation curve, based on the effect of topography on the field of vertical motion.
