Radar pictures overlaid with lightning locations

Since its launch in June last year, the lightning location information service on AMIDS was well received by the aviation community. To help users avoid severe weather, a new AMIDS product showing rain areas detected by the radar overlaid with lightning locations was released on 6 July 2006. From the distribution of lightning bearing rain areas, the aviation community will be better able to gain a comprehensive appreciation of the severe weather location.
