Lightning Animations (492 videos)


--August is the last month of meteorological summer in the Northern Hemisphere. --August lightning is dominated by the diurnal cycle that has most activity during afternoons. --Most thunderstorms at higher latitudes move from west to east, while they move from varying directions in tropical regions. --The major islands and land areas of tropical Southeast Asia have thunderstorms nearly every afternoon in sea breezes and along mountain slopes. Motion is from varying directions near the equator. --Thunderstorms form to the south and north of the Himalayas on most August days. --The eastern half of the Indian subcontinent and southern half of China have frequent lightning throughout August. --Lightning over Russia is frequent and tends to be in very long lines, often moving from the west or southwest. ~Ron Holle
