Realtime Lightning

Map Legend

Nexstorm can identify the direction and type of lightning, and to some extent, the distance. Cloud to Ground is obviously much more dangerous than intracloud. Both show how much energy is in a storm cell. Take the distance information from this display with "a grain of salt" and consult Wasp2 below or The Strikestar network for more accurate ranging.
