Lightning Forecast: The relationship between the sun's changing magnetic field with that of Earth's may one day help to predict lightning strikes. Scientists in this new study "propose that galactic cosmic rays are channeled to different locations around the globe, which can trigger lightning in already charged-up thunderclouds". Being able to predict lightning strikes in the future could be a huge breakthrough in weather safety.
