General --March is late summer in the Southern Hemisphere, and late winter in the Northern Hemisphere. --Almost all of the lightning over Africa is along and S of the equator during this month. --Most lightning is during the day, and some moves W over the Atlantic Ocean in the evening. --The equatorial trough, also called the Intertropical Convergence Zone, appears on most days over the eastern Atlantic and occasionally over the Indian Ocean. --Essentially no lightning occurs over the Sahara, except on the Mediterranean coast. --Most of the continental activity moves from E or NE to W or SW. Specific --04 to 11 March: Storms move along the northern Mediterranean countries. --12 to 13 March: These storms then move across Saudi Arabia. --20 to 21 March: Cold front moves SW to NE off the E coast of South Africa. --23 to 24 March: Strong storms start over southern Sudan and move SW; --08 to 09; 28 to 29 March: Well-identified thunderstorm complexes move offshore from Nigeria ~Ron Holle
