LightningMaps.org: Real-time Lightning Map
#69
North America simply has more lightning activity.

Warm air from the Gulf of Mexico collides with cooler air from Canada over the Great Plains and triggers massive thunderstorm activity during the Spring/Summer storm season.

Lightning is only shown where there are groups of in-range detectors installed. That's why Africa shows no strikes! You can get an idea of typical detection range of a station by observing the lines on the real-time map with the "Stations: on" setting.

Best,

But I just have probly what is a simple question, looking for an answer if there is one.

Why is north America seem to have the most severe activity? Is this all the time? Why? What is the cause/reason?

I do not see that much activity anywhere else in the world.........
Stations: 681
