Lightning Animations (492 videos)


--Numerous large organized thunderstorm lines and complexes form in the western U.S. and move generally eastward across the continent every few days. No large-scale cyclonic rotation is apparent within these lines. --Tornadic activity is mainly over the southern plains from Texas to Kansas during the month; largest outbreaks were on the 5th and 16th. --Flooding rains from Houston to Oklahoma result from multiple large storms crossing the region in the last half of the month. --A persistent cyclonic trough over the western U.S. results in afternoon thunderstorms through the month; every state west of the Continental Divide has several days of lightning. Lightning extends as far north as British Columbia. --Frequent lightning is over Panama, adjacent regions of Colombia, and offshore to the west, especially later in the month. --A broad equatorial trough is apparent in the Pacific Ocean north of the equator throughout the month. ~Ron Holle
