Lightning Flash Rate Density

The “Lightning Flash Rate Density” product is the total cloud-cloud and cloud-ground instantaneous lightning flashes per unit time per unit area.

This product does not explicitly depict discrete lightning strikes, but is based on Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) parameters and serves as a proxy for where lightning is forecasted to occur by showing flashes per unit time per unit area.
