and Sobel 2009 ; Sobel and Camargo 2011 ; Seth et al. 2011 ; Dwyer et al. 2012 ). Models from phase 5 of CMIP (CMIP5; Taylor et al. 2012 ) show changes of the same sign, as we discuss in section 3 and as documented elsewhere ( Biasutti 2013 ; Seth et al. 2013 ; Huang et al. 2013 ). These CMIP3 and CMIP5 studies suggest a variety of causes to explain the projected changes in the annual cycle, including high-latitude phase delays due to reduced sea ice affecting the tropics; changes in the

). Here we use 20-yr climate simulations covering the period 1991–2010. All models use weekly SSTs and sea ice concentrations based on the NOAA Optimum Interpolation V2 product ( Reynolds et al. 2002 ) as lower boundary conditions and prescribed aerosols. Despite different native resolutions, output was archived every 6 h on a standard horizontal (2.5° × 2.5°) grid with 22 vertical pressure levels (nine below 700 hPa). Unfortunately only eight of the YoTC models provide all the output necessary for

TRMM radar data (e.g., Gosset et al. 2013 ; Pfeifroth et al. 2016 ). The period used in the present study is 1983–2014. 3. Methods a. Analysis of atmospheric dynamics Both Ouagadougou and Dakar are located in the Sahel, a region stretching between about 12° and 18°N from the Atlantic coast to the Red Sea (see Fig. 1a ). This area is characterized by the transition from the arid conditions of the Sahara with less than 200 mm rainfall per year to a more humid climate equatorward. The West African
