). Convective cloud systems over the MC release considerable latent heat that constitutes a major component of the atmospheric heat budget. In addition, thermal land–sea contrasts associated with the major islands in this warm ocean environment generate complex local circulations that play important roles in both the energy cycle and the hydrologic cycle of the MC ( Neale and Slingo 2003 ). Temporal variations in convection and precipitation exhibit pronounced diurnal and intraseasonal variabilities, and
