relied on SST and sea level pressure (SLP) from the Atlantic–Mediterranean, Indian, and Pacific Oceans, although recent research has also highlighted the value of atmospheric variables ( Nicholson 2017 ), some of which are considered in this study (e.g., geopotential height and zonal wind). Moisture transport to the Ethiopian Highlands is primarily sourced from the Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, and Mediterranean Sea ( Viste and Sorteberg 2013 ; Segele et al. 2015 ).

) indicate the opposite. Figure 3a shows the difference in CORR of daily precipitation. Apart from few regions in the Sahara Desert, Mediterranean Sea, and other scattered spots over oceans, PDIR-Now shows a better CORR compared to PERSIANN-CCS. While the average increase in CORR over the entire global domain is only marginal (0.52–0.57; see Table 1 ), significant regional improvement is present specifically over eastern Asia. Precisely, CORR in daily precipitation improves from 0.44 to 0.54 over the
