--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 weakly defined over the Atlantic Ocean between Africa and South America, and diffuse over the Arabian Sea. --Afternoon thunderstorms form daily and move slowly west over sub-Saharan Africa, typically originating in Tanzania and adjacent higher-elevation regions. --Madagascar has daily thunderstorms throughout the month, particularly the west coast. --The northern edge of lightning activity has shifted south in January to mostly south of the equator. --Lightning is almost non-existent over the Sahara south of the Mediterranean. ~Ron Holle
