The dependence of rainfall amount per wet day as function of temperature is explored for De Bilt. On basis of diurnal cycle, frontal rain amounts can be separated from surface-forced convective rain amounts. The convective branch in rainfall starts from maximum temperatures of 20°C and becomes increasingly dominating for higher temperatures. The convective amounts increases in that region by 10%/°C, which is Clausius-Clapeyron to the power 3/2.
