7 [1] The origins of positive cloud-to-ground (+CG) 8 lightning in the stratiform region of a leading-line, 9 trailing-stratiform mesoscale convective system (MCS) are 10 investigated. Platforms include radars, NLDN data, and a 11 VHF 3-D lightning mapping system. This study examines a 12 small asymmetric MCS that occurred near the Colorado13 Kansas border in June 2000. In this storm 39 of the 269 14 +CGs produced over a nearly 5-hour period came to ground 15 within the stratiform region. Of… CONTINUE READING
