--January is mid-summer in the Southern Hemisphere. --Most of the lightning over Africa is along and south of the equator during this month. --Most lightning is during the day. --Essentially no lightning occurs over the Sahara, except on the Mediterranean coast. --There is not much lightning activity in the equatorial trough, except from the 22nd to 24th over the Atlantic Ocean. --A broad swath from Equatorial Guinea in the west, to Madagascar in the east, has thunderstorms nearly every day in January; there is usually not much movement to these storms. --Systems are traveling from west to east only at the higher latitudes to the south in this view. ~ Ron Holle
