) presented field observations that showed an extremely regular diurnal cycle over both land and ocean near Borneo. Across the MC region, differential daytime heating between land and water due to the difference in heat capacity leads to sea-breeze circulations that converge near the center of the islands, and combine with mountain–valley breezes to enhance convection over mountains ( Qian 2008 ). Cells begin to merge and organize, particularly over larger islands, leading to a late afternoon peak in

for Global Precipitation Mission (GPM; IMERG), version 5B, rainfall estimates. Both TRMM 3B42 and IMERG rainfall estimates are based on multiple microwave and infrared satellite retrievals and rain gauge observations ( Huffman and Bolvin 2018 ; Huffman et al. 2007 , 2018 ). Though some observational inputs are the same among TRMM 3B42 and IMERG, each contain unique observation sources that are not in the other product (Table 1 of Liu 2016 ). TRMM 3B42 rainfall is 3 hourly on a 0.25° × 0
