use gridded analysis fields produced primarily from the sounding data and estimates of radiative heating rates to document the diurnal cycle of the kinematic and thermodynamic features of the flow and the latent heating and moistening distributions over the NAME domain. 2. Data and analysis procedures a. Sounding data The NAME sounding network utilized in this study ( Fig. 1 ) features two nested domains: the Tier I Array (T1A), covering the core NAME region where precipitation is modulated by the
