The product of convective available potential energy (CAPE) and precipitation rate has previously been used as a proxy for cloud-to-ground (CG) lightning flash counts in climate change applications. Here the ability of this proxy, denoted CP, to represent the climatology and variability of CG lightning flash counts over the contiguous U.S. (CONUS) during the period 2003--2016 is assessed. CP values computed using the North American Regional Reanalysis are compared with negative and positive… Expand
