Abstract : Air Force Weather (AFW) currently uses a variety of stand-alone lightning mapping systems and regional lightning mapping networks to provide a wide range of support to both the Air Force and the Army. The data from these stand-alone systems and networks enable personnel to warn and advise on lightning hazards, not only for aircraft operations but also resource protection. This FYI provides information on lightning and its effects on operations. It discusses lightning detection systems and forecasting tips that you may want to integrate into your operations to help you warn your customers of lightning hazards.
