Lightning Forecast Model

The Southern California Weather Lightning Forecast Model is a model that is experimental.  This model will attempt to predict areas that lightning may strike.  It will have a tough time on elevated events or events that may happen during unexpected areas of lift that come in, which we call mesoscale lift zones.

NOTE:  It does not predict later night or early morning events at the moment.  There will be another map below that … that may be able to do it in the future.
