Another May record

In addition to being unusually warm May this year it was also quite "flashy". The hot weather also caused some intense thunderstorm resulting in record number of lightning strikes during may. The total amount of lightning recorded during this may was over 23000, and most of them during the lsst eight days of the month. The average amount of lightning we see here around may is 6600.

This month has also already seen more than average amount of lightnings. During the first 36 hours the average number for june (25100) was already passed. And at least around here the thunderstorms continued to roar today as well. If the trend continues like this we will pass the average for the whole summer already before midsummer.
