Storm tracker

Lightning detecting equipment also known as storm tracking, detects bursts of electrical energy produced by electric storms from either cloud to ground, ground to cloud or cloud to cloud lightning. The equipment we are using is the highly sensitive Boltek LD-250 Lightning Detector with GPS and Astrogenic System software, namely ‘NexStorm, StormVue NGX. And StormStation5 This software prints lightning strikes on a map centered at Munlochy PWS in real time and then publishes this on a user friendly interface below. Historical data is also kept on our dedicated weather server.


Although our map shows a range of 1200 miles, in reality, the antenna and equipment limits the actual strike distance to about 300 miles. You can use the Map Zoom buttons to zoom into a closer range around Munlochy PWS.
