Short summary
This study deals with the development of nocturnal low-level clouds, which frequently form over southern West Africa during the monsoon season. We performed numerical simulations with the COSMO model and identified processes possibly relevant to cloud formation. The study was made in preparation of a field campaign, which took place in summer 2016 within the DACCIWA project and the results contributed to the optimisation of the measurement strategy during the campaign.
