NEW! Lightning Strike Detector located in West Lethbridge.

We are testing the Boltek Long Range Lightning Detection System that was recently installed here at our West Lethbridge Weather station!

This system detects the low frequency radio signals produced by lightning’s electrical discharge. This signal is the crackling you hear on an AM radio when thunderstorms are nearby. These signals travel for hundreds of miles and are detected by StormTracker’s antenna. The range of this detector is over 500 KM radius. For more info on the Boltek System FAQ

There is a joint effort between 5 other Personal Weather Station operators to become part of Microsferics Real Time North America Weather where you can see the collective strike info by areas and zoom in accordingly. The more the stations within range of each other, the more accurate the details. More details to follow!
