Short summary
Weather and climate models show large errors in the frequency, intensity and persistence of daily rainfall, particularly in the tropics. We introduce a set of diagnostics to reveal the spatial and temporal scales of precipitation in models and compare them to satellite observations to inform development efforts. Although models show similar errors in 3 h precipitation, at the time step and gridpoint level some produce coherent precipitation and others exhibit worrying quasi-random behavior.
