-limited climate regimes ( Draper et al. 2018 ). Despite these biases, MERRA-2 provides a quality reanalysis and a useful tool for this study. The availability of a variety of diagnostics at hourly frequency allows for a better representation of diurnal variations, and makes possible a precise day/night delineation, as is necessary for this analysis. b. Heat-wave definition Rather than using Tmax and Tmin as has been done in previous studies to define heat waves, we use average daytime and average nighttime

the gridded Climate Prediction Center (CPC) Unified Gauge-Based Analysis of Global Daily Precipitation at a resolution of 0.25° × 0.25° ( Xie et al. 2007 ; Chen and Xie 2008 ). The Modern-Era Retrospective Analysis for Research and Applications, version 2 (MERRA-2), was used to represent the large-scale circulation and meteorological quantities that are not easily observed ( Bosilovich et al. 2015 ; R. Gelaro et al. 2016, manuscript submitted to J. Climate ). Hourly data from MERRA-2 are
