Africa_6HR_April2014

--April is autumn in the Southern Hemisphere, and spring in the Northern Hemisphere. --Almost all of the lightning over Africa is south of 10 degrees North latitude. --Most lightning is during the day, and some moves W over the Atlantic Ocean in the evening. --Most of the continental activity moves from E or NE to W or SW. --Thunderstorm initiation occurs over Ethiopia on many days and moves W or SW across the continent. --Almost no lightning occurs over the Sahara, except along the Mediterranean coast. --The equatorial trough, also called the Intertropical Convergence Zone, is apparent in some form almost every day over the eastern Atlantic and Indian Oceans. ~Ron Holle
