2006 ; Koch et al. 2008 ; Marsham et al. 2011 ). Whatever the dominant mechanism for the initiation, organization, and maintenance of deep convection at night across the Great Plains, weather and climate models poorly capture this nocturnal maximum (e.g., Surcel et al. 2010 ; Trenberth et al. 2003 ), and this may have implications downwind ( Stensrud 1996 ) and as far downstream as Europe ( Rodwell et al. 2013 ). Warm-season QPFs are relatively less accurate ( Fritsch and Carbone 2004 ), which
