I’m working on a gauge that shows the lightning strike distance from my tempest. From the API I can get: avgStrikeDistance, strikeCount, and as a summary: strikeCount1h, strikeCount3h, strikeLastDist, strikeLastEpoch.
But none of those tell me if the storm is approaching or departing? I can compare the current strike to the previous strike but that is not reliable as the strikes jump all over the place. It would be awesome if there was some type of property based on weatherFlows AI that could let us know if the storm is approaching or departing.
Maybe it is there in another field and I have missed it??
Has anyone else worked out a way to tell if a storm is approaching or departing based on lightning information?
