One comment on “GOES-14 SRSOR and Lightning from 06/12/13

  1. Mike – I haven’t kept up with lightning research over the years and how it relates to severe weather/heavy rain. My experience with it is from 20 years ago when we had a good lightning detection network at the NWSFO in Albany. One of the forecasters had tried to find a correlation and from what I remember it was a marginal correlation. There was some thought that the polarity ratio played a role (ie there seemed to be a higher ratio of negative to positive as the storms weakened as compared to the developing/intense stage). Do you know more about this? If there is something to be gleaned from the polarity, would you be able generate some graphics showing that?
