Hi there, Looking at the live lighting tracker, it seems to be all over? is that right? or is there more on the way? is it the calm before the storm?

Hi Brendan – thunderstorms tend to come and go, grow and die, over several hours.  More may come back.  The current Watch by Metservice means we have all the ingredients. believes all thunder activity today will be ISOLATED and not widespread, however the area that they will form in IS widespread.  Hope that makes sense!
