Africa_Feb16_06hr

--February is the last month of meteorological summer in the Southern Hemisphere, and of winter in the Northern Hemisphere. --The equatorial trough, also called the Intertropical Convergence Zone, is well defined over the Atlantic Ocean between Africa and South America, and more diffuse over the Arabian Sea. --Afternoon thunderstorms near the equator move in a disorganized pattern early in the month, then start to move to the west over sub-Saharan Africa later in February. --Madagascar has daily thunderstorms throughout the month, particularly the west coast. --The northern edge of lightning activity shifts to the north until afternoon strokes occur along the southern coast of West Africa by late in the month. --Lightning is non-existent over the Sahara south of the Mediterranean. ~Ron Holle
