Plain Language Summary: Although the Global Positioning System (GPS) has been widely used to study long-term trends or diurnal and subdiurnal cycles of precipitable water vapor (PWV), it has been rarely used for the intra-seasonal scale. We used the zenith wet delay (ZWD) data from the Sumatran GPS Array (SuGAr) in Indonesia, with help from reanalysis data, to study the summer intra-seasonal variability of PWV over Sumatra in years without strong inter-annual variability, and to probe the underlying atmospheric processes that control the variability.
