--January is the middle 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 somewhat defined just north of the equator over the Atlantic Ocean during the month. --Afternoon thunderstorms form over sub-Saharan Africa, generally south of the Equator. They tend to move slowly to the W near the equator and to the east over South Africa. Not much of this activity extends into the South Atlantic. --Madagascar has lightning activity every day that generally stays on the island. --No lightning occurs over the Sahara, except along the Mediterranean coast. ~Ron Holle
