--January is the middle month of meteorological winter in the Northern Hemisphere. --Thunderstorms move from the west at higher latitudes, and are generally stationary in Central America. --Cuba, Hispaniola, and Central America are usually free of lightning. --A weak intermittent equatorial trough, also called the Intertropical Convergence Zone, is in an east-west alignment over the eastern North Pacific Ocean and western Atlantic. --Lightning is almost completely absent in Canada and Alaska. ~Ron Holle
