Correction: Numerical simulation of a heavy rainfall event over Mindanao, Philippines, on 03 May 2017: mesoscale convective systems under weak large-scale forcing

The Original Article was published on 20 May 2023

Correction : Geoscience Letters (2023) 10:23

Following publication of the original article (Lagare et al. 2023), the authors would like to correct the errors in Figs. 5 and 9 labels and some references.

The authors have identified that Figs. 5 and 9 were mislabeled.

Schematic diagram demonstrating the development of MCSs. Sea breeze on the western coast supplied the abundant moisture that developed MCS-1 in the basin. The precipitating downdrafts of MCS-1 formed cold pools that contributed to its upscale growth. The interaction of the southeasterly winds and Mount Apo terrain developed MCS-2, and its precipitating downdrafts formed a cold pool that assisted its maintenance and growth

It has been corrected in this correction.
