QUITE A LIGHTNING SHOW ACROSS WESTERN/ NORTHEASTERN EUROPE IN THE PAST 24 HOURS! (credit: lightningmaps.org via Meteo Europe)
DISCUSSION: Over the past 24 hours, there has been an impressive onsalught of strong to severe storms; primarily focused across parts of Western as well as North/Northeastern Europe! Note the particularly high-density of lightning strikes observed and recorded across parts of Eastern France, many parts of Italy, and several countries across far Eastern Europe! This very concentrated lightning across far Eastern Europe was primarily generated by a strong line of thunderstorms which moved fairly slowly off to the east-southeast with time during the course of yesterday afternoon/evening! Though this is fairly common during the heart of the famous Summer-time convective season, it is still always impressive to witness (even from a long distance perspective) such intense (and widespread) thunderstorm events across the entire expanse of Europe.
