--May is the last month of meteorological spring in the Northern Hemisphere. -- May lightning over the United States is very frequent in well-organized lines and clusters that usually start on the Plains and move eastward for several days. --The east-west aligned equatorial trough, the Intertropical Convergence Zone, is sporadically apparent over the eastern North Pacific and western Atlantic. --Canada and Alaska lightning is primarily in western Canadian provinces until late in the month. --Central America and Mexico lightning increases from south to north through the month. --Daily unorganized thunderstorms over Brazil mostly move from the east, but individual storms do not travel far. --Thunderstorms are scarce over Hawaii. ~Ron Holle
