Its is with great pleasure to announce that most of U.S.A is covered by the Blitzortung Network!
This is a huge feat for free and open source Technologies that can vastly enhance science!
That doesn't mean that no more stations are needed in the U.S.A, we still need to grow the network to get the station density up so those weaker Lightning Strikes can be detected and more refined detail of the strikes can be analyzed.

Have a look at the Image below: its possible to identify Shortwave, Longwave troughs and frontal systems based off Lightning data alone.

Blitzortung Presented at the New Zealand Meteorological Conference 2014.
We are very pleased with the outcome, the future is extremely bright for the Blitzortung Community as the community expands.

Northern Italy....You just a got one very strong storm recently which developed just offshore. Would have been likely to have been visible from the coast!
600+ CG Lightning strikes within 1 hour from this storm alone.
Here is a Lightning Map with some data from the storm while it was in its early mature phase.

A low Pressure system is deepening rather quickly in the central Tasman Sea, with an upper level let feed into it causing 2 fairly broad areas of convection in the Tasman Sea. Also of note, a residual trough is causing Storms in the Eastern areas of NSW,ACT and Queensland Australia.

Second day of limited storm activity for Europe, looks like it will continue for a bit mainly due to the large chain of High pressure ridges. Storms will be confined to the troughs in the Central South Europe.
UK and Ireland, Keep an eye on the forecasts, a significant Low pressure system is forecast to pass over.
Ireland you have risk of storms popping up around the 28th of August when the systems extends a trough around the country, moisture being dragged in plus the cool upper level temps give a risk of storm occurring then. Model runs a bit far atm, but keep this in mind.
Anyway, U.S.A once again is alight with Lightning... Lucky People!

I had a thought that if you made a widget that used the same tech this would be amazing for people on the go.

New Zealands Lightning Activity, 13-14 May, 2015 06:00 UTC Time.

This  Lightning Timelapse shows a sequence of fronts moving up New Zealand, particularly moving through #Wellington  causing the #WellingtonFlood .

Quite a few active days Lightning wise for New Zealand over the past few days.
A Sub-Antarctic Jet over the country with cold upper temperatures aloft.

On October 2-3rd the USA was quite Lightning active due to a cold airmass change coming behind the warm sector making conditions quite unstable. The Front associated with the change was quite strong as a result.

Here is a Lightning plot time-lapse of the cold front and other associated storms from the 2-3rd of October UTC.

Heard the Thunder last Night in NZ?
Quite an active front ripped through the upper half of the North island last night. Here is a time-lapse of the activity.
Some Weather stations dropping 5*C instantly as the front passed through.

Free Open Source Lightning Detection System
Introduction
Blitzortung.org is a free and open-source Lightning detection System, based on the TOA/TOGA system.
The network was founded in Germany, and then rapidly expanded to Europe. Now we have networks in Oceania (Australia, New Zealand), and America (South America, USA,Canada).
