Lightning Animations (492 videos)


--April is autumn in the Southern Hemisphere, and spring in the Northern Hemisphere. --In the tropics, thunderstorms are typically stationary or move slowly to the E, while they move more rapidly from W to E at higher latitudes. --Much of the lightning is during the day. --The major islands of SE Asia have thunderstorms nearly every afternoon. On these islands, afternoon lightning forms due to sea breezes and along the slopes of mountain ranges. --Early and late in the month, a very sharp WNW-ESE line of lightning forms in the afternoon at the base of the Himalayas over Nepal and northern India. --The equatorial trough over the oceans is not well organized within this view for most of the month. ~Ron Holle
