Asia_Jan_2017_06hr

--January is the middle month of meteorological winter in the Northern Hemisphere, and of summer in the Southern Hemisphere. --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, but no persistent direction of motion. --Several systems move west to east over the Mediterranean Sea through the period of the loop. --Lightning is very frequent over Australia, southern Africa, and Madagascar during the period of the loop. --Lightning over Africa is frequent to the south of the Equator but has minimal organization for more than a few hours during the period of the loop. --The Indian subcontinent, China, and southern Red Sea have minimal lightning. --Lightning is present nearly every day over and near Japan through the period of the loop, including its west coast. ~Ron Holle
