Best I can interpret is that the all-day number is the probability that it'll be raining at any randomly-selected point during the day. Thus, if it were known with 100% certainty that 100% of the area would be dry all morning, and rain from the stroke of noon to the end of the day, then the daily number would be 50%.

But then, that interpretation is inconsistent with the numbers in post #8.
