SE Asia_Feb16_06hr

--February is the last month of meteorological summer in the Southern Hemisphere, and of winter in the Northern Hemisphere. --Most thunderstorms in tropical regions move from varying directions, while at higher latitudes they move from west to east. --The major islands and land areas of tropical Southeast Asia have thunderstorms nearly afternoon due to sea breezes and along mountain slopes. --The equatorial trough, also called the Intertropical Convergence Zone, is somewhat well defined over the Pacific Ocean from Malaysia eastward, and in the Indian Ocean. --Australia has thunderstorms almost every day in the form of sea breezes, cold fronts, and squall lines. --Most of the February New Zealand lightning is on the 17th and 18th. --India and China have mostly minor February thunderstorms. ~Ron Holle
