Microferics TOA Lightning Display

Microsferics TOA Lightning Network

The TOdA (Time Of difference of Arrival) system is a network based lightning triangulation method
by employing multiple volunteer detection sites across Europe and North America. It provides high accuracy
detection which augments the participating stations existing lightning detection systems.

SW Lightning - Pepper Ridge North Valley is part of this project and supplies data to the TOdA network

Regional mLDN TOA Network 2 hr Lightning Plot
- updates automatically every 30 seconds -
(The Default setting Displays data within 438 miles of - Pepperridge North Valley) :

Network Stations are shown by the small Green dots
Use the Zoom Controls to see different distance plots

6 Hr Lightning time lapse: (Updates every 5 minutes)

Hover over for controls (near the center bottom of map) to manually control the Time lapse.
Otherwise it Runs Automatically (see lower right corner of map).

Visit the Microsferics Home Page for more real-time maps and information on the network.

Note: Until there are more stations are reporting in Arizona and the Southwest Region strike display is limited.
Own a PWS in the US (especially AZ)? please Contact the Network if interested in joining.
NOTE: Operating a Boltek Lightning Detection System is no longer required to participate.

Regional lightning detection is here, just in time to track the monsoon season thunderstorms. The lightning detection system consists of a Boltek™ lightning detector and a TOA Kit to receive and send data to Microferics server for lightning analysis. The TOdA (Time Of difference of Arrival) system is a network based lightning dectection system which utilizes the triangulation method for more accurate plotting of Lightning strikes.

Disclaimer Note: Remember do not based your outdoor plans or activities solely on the lightning information provided here, this lightning display is for informational purposes only, and not intended to be used, for the protection of life or property. Remember to follow the, Lightning Safety Rules!, especially if thunderstorms are nearby!

 Pepper Ridge North Valley Random Weather Facts

Dew point is the temperature to which air must be cooled for saturation (100% relative humidity) to occur. The dew point is an important measurement used to predict the formation of dew, frost, and fog. If dew point and temperature are close together in the late afternoon when the air begins to turn colder, fog is likely during the night. Dew point is also a good indicator of the air's actual water vapor content, unlike relative humidity, which takes the air's temperature into account. High dew point indicates high vapor content; low dew point indicates low vapor content. In addition a high dew point indicates a better chance of rain and severe thunderstorms. You can even use dew point to predict the minimum overnight temperature. Provided no fronts or other weather pattern changes are expected overnight, the afternoon's dew point gives you an idea of what minimum temperature to expect overnight.
