Urbanization-induced increases in heavy precipitation are magnified by moist heatwaves in an urban agglomeration of East China

Abstract:

Heavy precipitation (HP) events can be preceded by moist heatwaves (HWs; i.e. hot and humid weather), and both can be intensified by urbanization. However, the effect of moist HWs on increasing urban HP remains unknown. Based on statistical analyses of daily weather observations and ERA5 reanalysis data, we herein investigate the effect of moist HWs on urban-intensified HP by dividing summer HP events into NoHW-preceded and HW-preceded events in the Yangtze River Delta (YRD) urban agglomerati...
