--October is the middle month of meteorological autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. --Thunderstorms move from the west at higher latitudes, and from the east in the tropics. --Daily thunderstorms form over Cuba, Hispaniola, and Central America throughout the month. --A broad and somewhat intermittent equatorial trough, also called the Intertropical Convergence Zone, is in an east-west alignment over the eastern North Pacific Ocean and western Atlantic. --Several eastward moving troughs cause thunderstorm outbreaks starting in California, then the Four Corners States, including Arizona. These troughs move east to Texas and adjacent states and result in thunderstorms with heavy rain. --Lightning activity in Canada is minimal. ~Ron Holle
