Current convective parameterizations are often successful at simulating the seasonal variation of convective rainfall. However, they are generally less successful at simulating shorter timescale aspects of tropical rainfall variability. I will give a progress report on the development of a new convective parameterization with particular attention paid to its ability to simulate the diurnal variation of tropical rainfall over the tropical oceans.
