convective instability. This paper builds on the observational analysis to further advance our understanding of the diurnal cycle of rainfall by examining convection-permitting simulations over West Africa. These simulations cover the entire warm season of West Africa, which provides more confidence than in the case studies of previous convection-permitting simulations (e.g., Pearson et al. 2014 ; Birch et al. 2014 ). More importantly, the analysis of the diurnal cycle of rainfall in our simulations is

average monthly PRISM precipitation over WGEW for DJF (blue), JJA (red), and annual mean (green). Because WGEW is close to the southern border of the United States and PRISM data only cover the continental United States, grid boxes with a grid size greater than ~1° contain missing data (over Mexico). To quantify the impact of excluding Mexico on the results in Fig. 10 , 2.5° monthly stage IV (5) precipitation data over the United States only P u (like in the analysis in Fig. 10 ) is compared with
