English Abstract

The spatial and temporal distribution character for lightning of the westerly zone systems and tropical systems that influence the south of China is studied and analyzed, and the difference between them is compared. The results indicate that in the yearly-first flood season, most of the lightning process of westerly zone systems occur at night, while the counterparts of the tropical system almost always happen in daytime; cloud systems of the westerly zone system are quite different from the tropical system in the lightning distribution character and range. The cause of the formation for lightning is also discussed in this article.
