Abstract

The isohyetal map for the 10 or 5 minute interval of time, if it is constructed from the sufficiently dense network of rain-gauge stations, sometimes reveals celluar or isolated heavy rain areas, which the authors call 'Rain Cells' here.
In this paper, several examples of rain cells are presented. Various properties of rain cells and their ways of movements are also discussed with their synoptic situations.
