Short summary
We combine in situ soil moisture observations with radar-derived precipitation to evaluate soil moisture feedback on convective rainfall in the US Southern Great Plains. We find strong connections between morning soil moisture and atmospheric conditions including boundary layer height, surface temperature, and relative humidity at the boundary layer top. The results of this study demonstrate both positive and negative soil moisture feedbacks are important in this region of the USA.
