--January is the middle month of meteorological summer in the Southern Hemisphere, and of winter in the Northern Hemisphere. --Most thunderstorms in tropical regions move slowly from varying directions, while at higher latitudes they move from west to east. --The major islands and land areas of tropical Southeast Asia have thunderstorms nearly afternoon due to sea breezes and along mountain slopes. --The equatorial trough, also called the Intertropical Convergence Zone, is usually well defined in an east-west alignment over the Pacific Ocean from Malaysia eastward, and less organized in the Indian Ocean. --Australia has thunderstorms every day in the form of sea breezes, cold fronts, and squall lines. --Most of the New Zealand January lightning is on the North Island except on the 21st. --India and China have minimal January lightning except for a few small storms. ~Ron Holle
