Plain Language Summary: The usefulness of Clausius-Clapeyron (CC) scaling in explaining extremely heavy precipitations is explored in the present-day climate and in pseudo-global-warming (PGW) conditions. This is analyzed by conducting regional-scale numerical simulations for two recent extreme rainfall events that occurred in Japan: the case in northern Kyushu during 5-6 July 2017 and the case in Shikoku Island during 5-8 July 2018.
