and Yasunari (2006) , the diurnal cycle impacts processes on the intraseasonal time scale, thereby complicating the treatment of the Madden–Julian oscillation (MJO; Madden and Julian 1971 ). The diurnal cycle of rainfall is particularly prominent in coastal and mountainous areas of the monsoon regions and Indonesian Maritime Continent ( Janowiak et al. 2005 ). While observations of the diurnal cycle of convection have increased dramatically during the past decade, clarification of the mechanisms

) showed that the horizontal variation of the vertical distribution of heating, calculated from TRMM PR observations using a simple method, is also very important in simulating the large-scale tropical circulation correctly. During the past four decades, cloud-resolving models (CRMs) have advanced sufficiently to allow the study of dynamic and microphysical processes associated with MCSs (see a review by Tao 2007 ). Chief among many significant improvements has been the addition of ice microphysical
