Extreme heavy precipitation is increasing in frequency and intensity, and results from new global sub-daily datasets and high-resolution modelling suggest that precipitation extremes will intensify more than anticipated based upon theoretical considerations. Understanding this process is vital in advancing the theoretical knowledge necessary for a step change in regional prediction from understanding the nature and drivers of precipitation extremes.
