characteristics and hitherto poorly documented atmospheric dynamics of these events. Only the Ouagadougou rainfall event is briefly discussed in Cornforth et al. (2017) as an example of an African easterly wave (AEW) breaking event, and a synoptic overview is given in Galvin (2010) . The paper is structured as follows. Section 2 gives a detailed description of the gauge, satellite, and reanalysis data used in this study, including their advantages and limitations. Section 3 describes the methods to

1. Introduction Numerical atmospheric models generally consider terrestrial hydrological processes as only being vertical, in order to estimate the surface heat fluxes for constraining the atmospheric lower boundary condition. This is, for example, the case for the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model ( Skamarock and Klemp 2008 ) coupled with the Noah land surface model (LSM; Chen and Dudhia 2001 ). In this approach, the lateral redistribution of soil moisture according to the
