Lightning Animations (492 videos)


--July is the middle month of meteorological summer in the Northern Hemisphere. --Most thunderstorms at higher latitudes are moving from W to E, while there is weak motion from the E closer to the equator. --The major islands of SE Asia have thunderstorms nearly every afternoon due to sea breezes and along the slopes of mountain ranges. --Lightning is on the S side of the Himalayas over India every day; storms often move toward the ESE. --Very little lightning is present over the high plateau of western China. --Thunderstorms form almost daily over the NE shore of the Black Sea and often move N to NE. --Sea breeze storms form daily along the W coasts of Yemen and sometimes Saudi Arabia. --A nearly stationary large area of lightning is over NE China and eastern Mongolia during the last half of the month. ~Ron Holle
