Short summary
To what degree can precipitation be predicted given information about clouds? Or, conversely, with precipitation information at hand, can we provide good guesses about the clouds responsible? To answer these questions, we performed joint analysis of rainfall and cloud data, which are significantly decoupled. We find that only for the deepest and thickest clouds does cloud amount relate strongly with the intensity of rainfall, and that the details are different over oceans and land.
