--June is early summer in the Northern Hemisphere. --In the tropics near the equator, thunderstorms are stationary or move slowly to the W, while they move more from W to E to the north of the tropics. --Much of the June lightning is during the day, especially over the large islands. --The major islands of SE Asia have thunderstorms nearly every afternoon. On these islands, afternoon lightning forms due to sea breezes and along the slopes of mountain ranges, then often move onto nearby oceans. --Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Borneo have significant lightning all month. --Daily storms develop over the highlands of Ethiopia and Sudan throughout the month. --During most of June, a sharp WNW-ESE line of lightning forms in the afternoon at the base of the Himalayas over Nepal and northern India. These storms often move to the SE. --Sea breeze thunderstorms form on both the N and S coasts of the Gulf of Oman every day of the month. ~Ron Holle
