Africa_Nov15_06HR

--November is the last month of meteorological spring in the Southern Hemisphere, and of autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. --The equatorial trough, also called the Intertropical Convergence Zone, is quite well defined in an east-west alignment over the Atlantic Ocean between Africa and South America, and is diffuse over the Arabian Sea. --Afternoon thunderstorms form daily and move W over sub-Saharan Africa, typically originating in Ethiopia and other higher-elevation regions to the S, and usually dissipate to the W before the next day. --The northern edge of lightning activity has shifted southward since October to south of 10 degrees latitude. --Coastal sea-breeze thunderstorms move W over the ocean from Liberia, Ivory Coast, and adjacent countries on many days, but do not survive far offshore. --Afternoon thunderstorms form often along the coast of Somalia. --Madagascar has daily lightning except during the middle of the month. ~Ron Holle
