Lightning Animations (492 videos)


--February is the last month of meteorological winter in the Northern Hemisphere, and of summer in the Southern Hemisphere. --Most thunderstorms at higher latitudes move from west to east, while they move from varying directions in tropical regions. --The major islands and land areas of tropical Southeast Asia have thunderstorms nearly every afternoon in sea breezes and along mountain slopes. Motion is from west to east early in the month, then from east to west at the end of February. --Several systems move west to east over the Mediterranean Sea through the period of the loop. --Lightning is very frequent over Australia, southern Africa, and Madagascar during February. --Lightning over Africa is frequent to the south of the Equator but has minimal organization for more than a few hours. --The equatorial trough is diffuse during the last half of the month over the Indian Ocean. --Lightning is present on many days over and near Japan, especially on its west coast. ~Ron Holle
