--May is the last month of meteorological spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and of autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. --Major lightning-producing squall lines move from the northwest to southeast across northeast India and Bangladesh, especially early in the month. --The major islands and land areas of tropical Southeast Asia, including New Guinea, have daily thunderstorms in sea breezes and along mountain slopes; they are mostly stationary until moving from the east late in May. --Most thunderstorms at higher latitudes move from west to east, while they move from varying directions in tropical regions. -- Australia and New Zealand lightning is in a few large organized systems in May. --The equatorial trough, the Intertropical Convergence Zone, is difficult to identify on most May days over the Indian and Western Pacific Oceans. ~Ron Holle
