Thunderstorms are some of the most exciting weather phenomena, and you’ll be able to understand them better with our Lightning Analysis product. This product shows all the lightning strikes that have occurred in the last hour. The location of the strike is shown with either a (+) or (-) symbol depending on the charge of the strike (positive, or negative). The age of the strike is shown via the color of the icon, with the brighter colors indicating more recent strikes.
If you click the map, you can zoom into county level for a closer look at which towns strikes are happening near. Once you’re at the county zoom level, click a specific (+) or (-) icon for detailed information about a particular strike, including exactly where it hit (street level), exactly what time it hit, its charge, and much more.
