effects of mesoscale convective systems ( Chen and Houze 1997 ). Over land, daytime heating exerts the primary control on the diurnal cycle of precipitation; however, factors influencing the development and organization of convection—surface fluxes, surface heterogeneity, low-level jets, orography, convective downdrafts, etc.—are varied and complex, complicating its treatment in models ( Betts and Jakob 2002 ; Bechtold et al. 2004 : Khairoutdinov and Randall 2006 ). Observations prior to NAME have

. Fu and anonymous reviewers for their constructive comments on an earlier version of this manuscript. We also thank W. K.-M. Lau and J. Wu for processing the TRMM/CSH Q 1 datasets. This research was carried out at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, under a contract with NASA. The TRMM/TRAIN Q 1 − Q R and Q R datasets were generated with the support of NASA NEWS research Grants NNG06GC99G and NNG06GC46G, respectively. REFERENCES Awaka , J. , T. Iguchi
