National Lightning Maps

North America real-time - from the Microferics Network

Microsferics Lightning Detection Network, MicroLDN, is a low cost, high accuracy experimental lightning detection network
It is GPS disciplined to accurately time stamp received signals accurate to within microseconds . It is compatible with the
Boltek range of lightning detectors, making them capable of networked lightning locating using the signal Arrival Time
Difference method to triangulate the strikes position. There is also stand-alone detector version for use within the network.

North America near real-time - Vaisala Lightning Explorer

00-20 20-40 40-60 60-80 80-100 100-120
Minutes from current image timestamp

Vaisala Lightning Explorer displays recent lightning activity across the entire continental U.S. The lightning data displayed is
20 minutes delayed and updated every 20 minutes. The map shows a 2-hour time period with lightning data color coded
in 20-minute increments. Lightning Data from the U.S. National Lightning Detection Network

Vaisala Lightning Explorer uses lightning data from Vaisala's U.S. NLDN, the most reliable lightning detection system
in the U.S. The U.S. NLDN constantly detects lightning discharges anywhere in the continental U.S.
Each symbol on the map represents one recorded lightning event.

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.

 Pepper Ridge North Valley Random Weather Facts

The name comes from the Arabic word habb, meaning "wind." A Haboob is a giant wall of dust sometimes 3000ft tall,that travels a 40mph+, they frequently form here in Arizona from the gust front outflow boundary of summer thunderstorms. Haboobs are most frequent in Southwestern North America during the months of May through September, with the most frequent occurrence in late June, but they can occur in every month. (A picture of a classic Haboob appears on our Monsoon Page.)
