Operational test of a lightning forecast model / Eric Taylor, meteorologist. : En57-44/85-007E-PDF

"Accurate forecasting of lightning activity could be an aid to forestry managers involved in the deployment of fire fighting resources during the fire season. ... Lightning generally develops over British Columbia in association with synoptic scale features of the atmosphere that can be identified and their short-term movement and forecast positions can be determined. .. A model was developed at the Pacific Weather Centre that attempts to link these synoptic-scale features with areas of expected lightning activity. This paper describes the use of this model in lightning forecasting in the summer of 1985."
