ng to other thunderstorm parameters. A relationship between total cloud lightning behavior and currently used radar interrogation techniques was found indicating lightning jumps can be classified into three different types. Two types show preponderance for a specific type of severe weather event and lightning behavior while the third show no preference. These findings are of significant interest to the operational meteorological community and in some case can be put to immediate use.
