Short summary
In this study, the back-building process of a quasistationary convective line with extreme rainfall is investigated using a cloud model. At the initiation stage of new cells, thermodynamic processes of near-surface latent heating coupled with adiabatic cooling above along the convergence line, rather than dynamic pressure perturbations, are found to be important. The stronger uplift and cooling aloft provided by old cells made their upstream areas more favorable for new cell development.
