Forecast: 5-7 August (Sun-Tue)

Last night the satellite-internet camera on the bare mountain top on Corsica made its first detections of lightning flashes over northern Italy... not sure yet if there were sprites among them. This is a colour camera image of a lightning channel recorded at 3:22:40 UTC over northern Corsica, pretty close to the camera:
Météorage detected this flash as well as a double-stroked weak positive discharge:
