Lightning Animations (492 videos)


--January is mid-summer in the Southern Hemisphere. --Most of the lightning is during the day. --The major islands of SE Asia have thunderstorms every afternoon during this period. --On the islands, afternoon lightning forms due to sea breezes and along the slopes of mountain ranges. These thunderstorms tend to move eastward later in the day. --The equatorial trough is present over the central third of this view, and thunderstorms tend to have a west to east motion on most days. --Lightning is generally more frequent in the E and N regions of Australia than to the S and W. ~ Ron Holle

--05 and 06 January: A strong and well organized line of thunderstorms moves W to E between Tasmania and SE Australia. --08 to 11 January: Several areas of thunderstorms move SW to NE from the SW coast of the island of Borneo. --12 January: A very well-defined sea breeze occurs along all of the west coast of Australia. --15 to 17 January: A circulation is evident over the N coast of Australia, likely due to a tropical cyclone. --26 to 28 January: This is a very active period for lightning over much of N and W Australia. --28 January: A long linear structure extends from the south coast of Australia onto the Indian Ocean, most likely along a frontal boundary moving W to E. ~ Ron Holle
