Cloudy, With a Chance of Thunderstorms
A PORTFOLIO EDITED BY JEFF KIDA
Lightning strikes a lot in Florida, about 1.5 million times a year. In Arizona, the number is less than half of that. Nevertheless, our summer monsoons put on quite a show, with wind, rain, thunder and cloud-to-ground lightning strikes that can generate up to a billion volts and reach temperatures in excess of 50,000 degrees.
