Africa_6hr_Oct_2014

--October is the middle month of spring in the Southern Hemisphere, and autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. --The equatorial trough, also called the Intertropical Convergence Zone, is active early and late in the month over the Atlantic Ocean. --Frequent organized lines of lightning move W onto the Atlantic Ocean from West Africa from Senegal southward. --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. --Frequent lightning activity is along the coast of Yemen and Saudi Arabia on the Red Sea. --Southern Africa is lightning-free until first spring strokes arrive in Namibia, then thunderstorms increase through the month to the south. ~Ron Holle
