Asia_Dec16_24hr [Combined]

--December is the first month of meteorological summer in the Northern Hemisphere, and of winter in the Southern Hemisphere. --Most thunderstorms at higher latitudes move from west to east, while they move from varying directions in tropical regions. --The major islands and land areas of tropical Southeast Asia have thunderstorms nearly every afternoon in sea breezes and along mountain slopes, but no persistent direction of motion. --Frequent systems move west to east over the Mediterranean Sea through the month. --Lightning is very frequent over Australia, southern Africa, and Madagascar in December. --Most lightning over Africa is south of the Equator during December. --The Indian subcontinent, China, and southern Red Sea have minimal lightning. --Lightning is present nearly every day over and near Japan throughout the month. ~Ron Holle
