Abstract: [1] A statistical cloud parameterization is presented, where in addition to earlier work the subgrid moisture/thermal variability is diagnostically determined as a sum of a turbulent and a convective contribution, the latter being a function of the convective mass flux. It is shown that the inclusion of a convective contribution allows us to reasonably reconstruct the time mean and variability of the variance of the conserved quantities total water and liquid water static energy. Application of the parameteri…
