• Strong Thunderstorm - Heavy rain with frequent lightning and thunder nearby

Lights pulse quickly to the sound of heavy rain. Booming sounds of thunder accompany bright flashes of light.

• Normal Thunderstorm - Steady rain with a full range of lightning and thunder

Lights pulse to the sound of rain. The sound of thunder can be heard from various distances. The closer the lightning, the louder the sound, and the brighter the flashes of light!

• Weak Thunderstorm - Light rain with occasional lightning and thunder in the distance

Lights pulse slowly to the sound of light rain. Dim flashes of light are followed by soft sounds of thunder.
