--August is the latter part of the summer in the Northern Hemisphere. --Most thunderstorms at higher latitudes are moving from W to E, while there is mainly slower E to W motion near and north of the equator. --The progression of the sun from E to W can be seen as indicated by the latest hours in white. --Much of the August lightning is over land and during the day. --Some storms at higher latitudes travel a long distance, last a long time, and move very quickly. --Storms sometimes form against the south slope of the Himalayas. --Daily storms develop over the south and west coasts of Yemen and move west to mainland Africa, sometimes growing quickly over Ethiopia. ~Ron Holle
