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

drainage. However, the change in precipitation between WRF and WRF-Hydro was modest due to strong oceanic and orographic forcing in their study region. Differences between WRF and WRF-Hydro seasonal precipitation were also small in the case of a steep catchment at the foothills of Mount Kenya, East Africa ( Kerandi et al. 2018 ). In West Africa, Arnault et al. (2016) found that the impact of overland flow and runoff–infiltration partitioning on precipitation was scale dependent, that is, much more
