Africa_6hr_Feb2014

--February is summer in the Southern Hemisphere. --Most of the lightning over Africa is along and south of the equator during this month. --Most lightning is during the day. --The equatorial trough, also called the Intertropical Convergence Zone, appears intermittently in the eastern Atlantic and Indian Oceans. --Essentially no lightning occurs over the Sahara, except on the Mediterranean coast. --A broad swath from Equatorial Guinea in the west, to Madagascar in the east, has thunderstorms nearly every day in February; there is usually not much movement to these storms. ~Ron Holle
