The C-POL Doppler-polarimetric radar, a Flinders Cessna 340 aircraft, a mesonet of 15 automatic weather stations, three ultrahigh-frequency wind profilers, and serial soundings were used to examine the evolution of convective forcing from the development of sea breezes to the organization of small squalls at the Tiwi Islands. Early sea breezes develop on narrow peninsulas and often `collide' from opposing shores, initiating much of the early precipitating convection on the islands. Island-scale breezes, however, routinely play a major role in the subsequent forcing of deep convection.
