--April is the middle month of meteorological spring in the Northern Hemisphere. --April lightning over the United States is very frequent in well-organized lines and clusters that usually start on the Plains and move eastward for several days. --The east-west aligned equatorial trough, the Intertropical Convergence Zone, is frequently apparent over the eastern North Pacific and western Atlantic. Sometimes there are parallel lines in an east-west orientation. --The only April lightning over Canada and Alaska is in the southern Canadian provinces. --Central America and Mexico have minimal lightning until the last half of April. --Daily thunderstorms over Brazil move from the east, but individual storms do not travel far. ~Ron Holle
