12 Hour Lightning Flash Rate History:
The yellow number is the peak flash rate count and the time it occurred.
lightning 12 hour flash history

This is a graph of the lightning activity over the last 12 hours.  The darker green lines represents -CG flashes,
while the cyan represents +CG. (CG) = Cloud to Ground Lightning flashes. 
Blue is +IC and pink is -IC. (IC) = Inter/Intra Cloud Lightning flashes.

Real time lightning detection is here, just in time to track the monsoon season thunderstorms. The lightning detection system consists of a Boltek™ lightning detector with lightning analysis performed by Lightning 2000™ from Aninoquisi Software.


Page Updates Every 1 to 2 Minutes:
Number in upper left corner of display represents the number of Flashes in the last minute.
The bar above count Number represents the storm threat potential;
Green = Low Risk , Yellow = Medium Risk and Red = High Risk

For Lightning flashes 10 minutes or older, the flashes appear in the following colors;

Green (-CG) and Cyan (+CG) denotes cloud-to-ground lightning discharges,
Fuchsia (+ IC) and Purple (- IC) denotes intercloud/intracloud discharges,
(CID) Compact Intercloud discharges will appear Orange
and Step Leader strikes will appear Yellow

At 15 Minutes Flashes appear as squares, At 30 Minutes Flashes appear as (X)'s,
At 60 Minutes Flashes appear as (+)'s.

Note: The Sizes of Flash images decrease with age up to 60 minutes.


Disclaimer Note: We have completed the calibration process of the storm ranging. Most Storms should now be correctly range, although due the limitations of the Boltek single antenna lightning system, some storms may be initially ranged incorrectly. Usually this corrects itself when multiple lightning strikes have occured, this allows a better analysis to be performed by the lightning 2000 software. Remember do not based your outdoor plans or activities solely on the lightning information provided here, this lightning display is for informational purposes only, and not intended to be used, for the protection of life or property. Remember to follow the, Lightning Safety Rules!, especially if thunderstorms are nearby!

 Pepper Ridge North Valley Random Weather Facts

RAINFALL
In Arizona, typically, the heaviest rain falls during the summer thunderstorm season, or Monsoon, in our state. The rain can accumulate very quickly, resulting in flooded streets or washes, and can even cause deaths via flash flooding. In Phoenix, the greatest rainfall in a 24 hour period was 4.98 inches on July 1-2, 1911. This total is quite a bit less than the Arizona record of 11.4 inches, which fell on Workman Creek (near Globe) on September 4-5, 1970.
