At least 10 lightning strikes seen - 3.7.2022 at 11.00 - 3.7.2022 at 13.00 Nurmes Observation number 107450

Visibility IV / V

The frontal zone, together with the high moisture in the lower troposphere and the cooled middle troposphere, created a suitable base for thunderstorms. Thunderstorm development started in the morning hours near Kuopio, rapidly intensifying from small cells to MCS. Pictures taken from the observation tower in Ylä-Valtimo. The lightning was mainly cloud lightning, but some really nice ground lightning was recorded on the camera. Shot using a trigger. In the quadrilateral, the cell shortly before the crossing. The development of convection was very fast. EDIT added as an illustration the body from the lightning, the point of impact stands out.

      Salaman osuma on toisinaan paikannettavissa selvästi tunnistettavaan kohteeseen, kuten esimerkiksi puuhun, radiomastoon, lentokoneeseen. Pyydämme, että kerrot havaintokertomuksessa tarkemmin kohteesta ja sen sijainnista.


      Tässä kuvassa salama iski noin 100 metrin päähän. Iskun tarkkaa kohdetta ei tiedetä. Kuva Miikka Mäkinen.
